2/17/19

2/17/19

Body Type: 6-foot-1 175-pounds right-handed pitching prospect with an average build.

Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Slow tempo delivery with a slight pause at top of his lift. Creates some deception and hides the ball well.

Fastball: 73-77 mph fastball works out of a ¾ slot with above average run and sink. Really worked the bottom half of the zone.

Curveball: 62-63 mph curveball has a short 11/5 break. Rotation on the pitch is fairly tight and the pitch has developing depth.

Changeup: 71-72 mph changeup is thrown with fastball like arm speed. The pitch shows similar run and sink as the fastball.

Pitchability: Showed ability to command the fastball. Breaking ball presently more of a get me over pitch but could develop into an out pitch. Changeup is still developing and needs to improve feel for the pitch.

Role: Likely a bullpen option at the high school level. TBD on college level.

 

2/17/19 Position

Body Type: 6-foot-1 175-pound prospect.

Swing Mechanics: Uses a mini leg kick to initiate his load. Remains balanced with a somewhat longer bat path but keeps his barrel through the zone.
Hit:
Strong hands and barrel control.

Power: 84 mph exit velocity.

Offensive Projection: Shows the ability to drive balls into the gap at the highschool level. Could project as a gap to gap threat at the next level with increased raw power.

Field: At 3B he showed below average footwork and angles through the ball. Decent hands but a slow release.

Throw: 73 mph across the diamond.
Run:
4.91 home to first.

Defensive Projection: Arm strength would eliminate him from left side of the diamond. Might be a good fit at 1B if his bat can carry him there.
