7/11/18
Showed well defensively in the outfield with above average actions. Plays light on his feet with good footwork. Plays through the ball well with good ball skills. Throws were on target from a high ¾ slot. A right-handed hitter that starts in a balanced stance. Load is simple and repeatable. Back leg launch with an uphill path through the zone. Intent driven swing the generates gap pop. Offers slightly more speed than strength to swing but both tools are apparent.
60-yard dash: 7.79
Outfield Velocity: 72
Exit Velocity: 63

A right-handed hitter that starts in a wider setup. Uses a leg lift for timing and energy. Gets his barrel going through a bat tip. A back leg guy who takes an uphill path to the ball. Bat has some quickness and whip to it. Line drive type guy at this stage. Worked the opposite field gap well.  Behind the plate he starts in a mid crouch. Footwork is quick and gets him in line to second base. Transfer skills are developing. Arm action fits the position.
Home-1st: 4.88
Pop Time: 2.56-2.62
Catcher Velocity: 64

A right-handed hitter that starts in a tall setup with the weight on his back leg. Uses a simple stride for timing. Incorporates a bat tip load to get his upper half going. Strong kid with solid barrel whip through the zone. Bat works on a relatively level path. Would be aided by creating more energy with his lower half. Was at his best to his opposite field gap. Behind the plate receives the ball from a high stance. Consistently was able to put throws on the bag. Transfer is clean and arm strength will continue to develop with physical maturity.
60-Yard Dash: 8.23
Catcher Velocity: 62
Pop Times: 2.43-2.6
Exit Velocity: 71
