11/23/16
6-foot-2, 190-pound prospect. Ran a 7.75 60-yard dash. At third base he showed adequate footwork and confidence in his glove. Room for improvement would be in pre fielding footwork. Threw across the infield with 73 mph arm strength. At the plate he uses a toe turn to initiate his lower half. Hands stay simple prior to getting through the zone on a slightly downhill path. Gets solid extension through the ball. Registered a top exit velocity of 77 mph off the tee.

6-foot-2, 190-pound body frame. At the plate he shows rhythm throughout his loading sequence which involves minimal hand movement during his stride forward. Bat gets through the zone with some quickness, on a level path. Top exit velocity was 82 mph. Had more pop to his pull side. In the infield he has a tendency to play flat footed at times. Glove works and showed quickness to his transfer. Threw across the diamond with 72 mph arm strength. 

7/29/14
6-foot-2, 185-pound body frame. Infielder does a good job being aggressive to the baseball, he has a quicker release coming from a ¾ arm slot. Offensively, he starts from an open stance getting back to being squared up, uses a good short fluid hands back to shoulder trigger. Showed pull tendencies during his rounds of BP. Had an exit velocity of 81 mph. On the mound the right-hander uses a short slinging arm action with average armspeed through a high ¾ arm slot. He is a strike thrower who fills up the zone with all pitches. His fastball was between 71-73 mph. His curveball was at 58-61 mph with 12-6 tilt and gradual break. His changeup had some sink to it and was at 58-59 but could throw it using more armspeed.

6/16/14
6-foot-2, 185-pound body frame. From the infield, his footwork could improve by being more aggressive and playing through the baseball. Might work out better as a third-base type.

Offensively, he starts from a slightly open stance getting back to even, good fluid hands back trigger showing doubles power. Reached a top exit velocity of 76 mph. He ran a 4.82 down the line to first base. From the mound he throws with average armspeed, using a short arm action with some funk to it coming from a ¾ slot. Fastball is between 73-74 mph.
