6/20/18

Two-way prospect in the 2020 class. Swings it from the right side showing a compact, slightly downhill stroke through the zone. More present quickness than strength to hands through the zone. Line drive abilities with occasional gap pop. A middle infielder with quick, mechanically sound footwork. Glove works well stationary and on the move, displaying above average ball skills for class. Solid defender who’s skill set plays on the left side. Athletic delivery on the mound he can repeat. Very efficient lower half from leg lift into foot strike, creating energy/direction down the bump. Arm comes through a high-¾ slot with fastball sitting 79-81 mph. Spins two different breaking balls that can run into each other at times. Similar action on both slider/curveball that were tossed in the zone consistently. Also will flash a changeup that will shows regular fade at 72-73 mph.

2/18/18

6-foot, 166-pound prospect with athletic frame. Uses slow, deliberate tempo taking hands over his head in his rocker step. Limited use of his lower half. Fastball mostly sat 78-79 mph with occasional arm side run. Touched up to 81 mph. Needs to develop consistent command in the zone. Throws curveball and slider. Both have similar movement and velocity. Breaking ball has gradual 12/6 break at 65-66. Tends to be up in the zone. Changeup shows similar movement to his fastball at 69-70 mph. A sure-handed infielder that fielded each attempt cleanly. Would be aided by adding more fluidity to his actions and taking shorter angles to the ball. Throws were on a line with accuracy and recorded a 75 velocity across the diamond. At the plate he looks athletic/comfortable in the box. Movements are fluid and efficient prior to launch. Offers both strength and twitch to hands. His above average athleticism shows up there. Had issues with barrel strike caused by his downhill path cutting under the baseball. Would be aided by leveling out path to let his above average strength/batspeed show more frequently in swing and generate more natural ball flight. Has the raw physical tools to be a regular gap threat.

9/24/17

A talented two-way prospect in the 2020 class. At the plate he initiates movement through a leg kick timing mechanism. Hands move back during his stride, creating balance and separation. Finds plane well and generates above average bat speed and strength through the zone. Present gap pop with more to come as he adds strength to his athletic frame. In the infield he moves light on his feet and reacts well off the bat. Ball skills are there and he can make plays outside his funnel. Arm shows better than position velocity would indicate. Lateral mobility will need to improve to play the shortstop position at the next level but all other tools indicate he can stay in the infield. A good athlete and strike thrower on the bump. Delivery has a slower pace to it and requires some effort. Does a nice job of getting his lower half involved through an efficient hip load. Arm actions is long back prior to moving through a high-¾ slot. Fastball was mostly true through the zone, sitting 77-80 mph. Breaking ball has an 11/5 shape to it with big, early action at 62-65 mph. Displayed feel for the offering and threw it in most counts. Used the fastball mostly to get ahead and both offerings acted as out pitches.
