7/06/20

Hit: Very talented hit tool in 2023 class. Physical with natural whip through the zone. Ball jumps off his barrel. Has the ability to leave the yard presently. Turned on a few with authority in BP. No questioning the upside here.
Power: Easy gap pop.
Offensive Projection: Run producer.
Max BP Exit Velocity: 94 mph
Max BP Distance: 357 ft
Field: Rangy defender. Ball skills are serviceable and he moves well laterally. Definitely has tools to work with.
Throw: Clean arm.
Defensive Projection: Multiple spots. Corner lean.

2/23/20

2/23/20 Position Player
Hit:Left handed hitter. Starts with a wide, athletic set up in the box. Simple loading sequence as he uses a toe tap for timing purposes. Bat path is in and out of the zone quickly. Displays apparent bat speed, as he was able to generate backspin to the gaps.
Power: 88 mph tee ev. Present gap abilities.
Offensive Projection: Run producer traits.
Field: Worked out as a SS. Rangy defender with above average ball skills, not flashy but sure-handed.
Throw: 79 mph arm across the INF.
Defensive Projection:MIF.

2/09/20

2/9/20 Pitching
Delivery Notes: Bowen throws from a ¾ arm slot and shows a quick arm. Clean arm action but seems to be inefficient with his glove side. Overall slow controlled tempo.
Fastball: The fastball was 77-80 mph with some arm side life.
Curveball: His breaking ball was 62-65 mph and showed curveball shape and spin. Wasn’t particularly sharp but did show good depth.
Changeup: The changeup was 70-71 mph.
Pitchability: Average feel for his stuff. Secondary pitches show potential and will improve if he throws them with more arm speed and velocity, particularly the breaking ball. 

 

2/9/20 Position Player
Hit: At the plate Bowen uses a toe tap load and seems to be mostly on time. Shows naturally quick hands and appears to be able to control the barrel well to create consistent quality contact. Could improve his ability to keep the barrel through the zone. 
Power: 81 mph exit velocity.
Offensive Projection: Natural bat to ball guy with physical tools to develop into a true gap to gap threat.
Field: In the infield he shows good instincts with good rhythm and timing to the ball. Could polish up his footwork but shows a quick arm and fairly good glove skills.
Throw: 73 mph across the diamond. 
Defensive Projection: Good physical tools to stick at SS but may end up at 3B as well.

6/18/19

Body Type: 6-foot, 160-pound very projectable frame with room to add.
Swing Mechanics: Left-handed hitter that uses a double tap for timing as barrel travels to a vertical launch.
Hit: Fast twitch actions in the box. Upside is obvious. Minor path issues but ball really jumps off. Impressive combination of natural whip and physicality. Could hit for legitimate power once he adds some loft to stroke and he fills out that very projectable frame.
Power: Present gap abilities with much more to come.
Offensive Projection: Run Producer.
Field: Rangy defender with simple, yet fluid actions. There are minor things to clean up with movement patterns but the athleticism and ball skills are there.
Throw: Arm plays all over the field.
Defensive Projection: Left side of infield.
Additional Comments: High upside prospect that has a chance to be really good down the road.

Body Type: 6-foot, 160-pound righty with slim, projectable build. 
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Displays feel for his body through quick delivery. Long back arm action with some quick through a high ¾ slot. Expect the righty to improve as he matures through his projectable build. 
Fastball: 73-76. Shows above average command and stays true through the zone. Shows physical signs of promise for increased velo down the road. 1500-1700, with low 90s efficiency. 
Curveball: 58-59. Breaker came with gradual, big break at 11-5. Solid command with the secondary offering. 
Changeup: 66-67. Nice complement to fastball. Maintains arm speed on the offering that will show some dip through the zone. The pitch consistently came in at 67 mph. 
Pitchability: Strike thrower for the most part. 

6/12/19

Body Type: Very athletic, projectable frame.
Swing Mechanics: Left-handed hitter that starts in an upright stance. Uses a leg kick timing trigger with vertical barrel launch.
Hit: Loose, whippy swing with authority behind it. Ran into some path issues in BP but the burst and athleticism are obvious. Ball jumps to both sides of the field. Big time upside bat.
Power: 80 mph exit velocity. Potential to grow into legitimate raw power.
Offensive Projection: Run Producer.
Run: 4.84 H-1st.
Field: As a defender he worked out in the infield where he showed smooth actions. Nothing flashy out there but a good athlete with well above average ball skills. Very sure-handed.
Throw: Arm works and ball comes out well. 75 mph across the diamond.
Defensive Projection: Left side of infield.
Additional Comments:

Body Type: Very athletic, projectable frame. 
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Long-limbed right-hander with a very easy delivery. Long back arm action that comes through a high-¾ slot. Slot creates a tough, downhill plane for hitters on both sides of the plate. 
Fastball: 71-76 mph. Fills it up with the offering, living below the barrel. Mid 90s spin efficiency on the pitch. 
Curveball: 59-61 mph. 11/5 big shape. Spins it in the zone with gradual action. 
Pitchability: Filled it up.

Offensive Projection: Run Producer Potential.
Run: 7.81 60-yard dash.
Field: Plays light on his feet in the infield. Young kid with developing ball skills. Good athlete with fluidity.
