7/12/17
A right-handed hitter that starts in a tall setup. Takes his hands back to launch during his leg kick load. Bat works on a slightly uphill path with above average bat speed. Has some strength in his hands, as the barrel gets through contact well. Present gap to gap pop with much more pop to come as he fills out his projectable frame. Showed the ability to use both fields and has potential to grow into a power threat with maturity. In the outfield, he approaches the ball with some fluidity. Fields the ball cleanly on his glove side foot. Releases the ball from a natural 3/4 arm slot with a long pendulum motion. Arm speed is average. Could benefit by consistently staying on top of the ball. On the mound the right-hander has a smooth tempo to his low effort delivery. Uses an easy leg lift prior to his drop and drive load. Lower half creates energy and direction. Arm action is long and clean, while moving through a high-3/4 slot. Offers a three-pitch mix, working off his fastball. The fastball was mostly true, with slight cut at times coming in at 77-79 mph. Breaking ball had an 11/5 shape with gradual break to it. Looked to be his go to secondary offering. Also showed developing feel for the a changeup.
60-yard dash: 7.6
Outfield Velocity: 79
Exit Velocity: 93
