7/16/19

Body Type: 6-foot-1, 195-pound physical frame.
Swing Mechanics: Right-handed hitter that starts in a balanced stance. Uses a controlled stride during bat tip load.
Hit: Level to slightly downhill path with obvious strength behind it. Whippy stroke with hands speed in there as well. Pull side tendencies in BP, flashing authority. Has a chance to hit for power as he learns to generate natural backspin.
Power: 95.7 mph off the bat in BP.
Offensive Projection: Run producer qualities.
Field: In the outfield he plays with a controlled tempo that he maintains throughout. Ball skills are on par for class, showing a nice/one-handed play through.
Throw: Arm is an above average tool. 85 mph to home plate.
Defensive Projection: Corner Outfield.

Curveball: 71-73mph. 11/5 shaped with some depth. Above average pitch for class.
Changeup: 75-76mph. Enough to keep hitters off balance.

Additional Comments: Was 84-87mph at SOPG1.

5/28/19

Body Type: 6-foot-1, 195-pound physical frame.

Easy tempo. Long back arm action through a near over the top slot. Mostly clean delivery in general.

84-87 mph. Heavy pitch with late life.
Curveball:
71-73 mph. 11/5 shaped with some depth. Above average pitch for class.
Pitchability:
Above average.
Additional Comments:
Fast arm and delivery doesn’t require a ton of effort. Intriguing for sure. 26 Ks in 21 IP for Milford this spring as a sophomore.

Body Type: 6-foot-1, 195-pound physical frame.
Swing Mechanics:
Minimal load, quick hands. Barrel works slightly uphill
Hit:
Shows some bat speed, needs to improve barrel control to make consistent hard contact. Creates some loft on the ball. 
Power:
Line drive with occasional gap potential. 80 mph exit velocity.
Offensive Projection:
Multiple roles.
Run:
4.86 H to 1st
Field:
Aggressive to the ball without compromising body control. Clean/quick transfer, plays well thru the throw.
Throw:
Throws were strong and accurate showing some carry at 86 mph from the outfield.
Defensive Projection:
Speed will likely limit him to a corner outfield role.
Additional Comments:
Nice athlete with a strong tool set. Future is likely on the mound, but should be a strong offensive player at the HS level.
