6/7/16
A two-way prospect with 6-foot, 165-pound athletic frame. Starts slightly open before getting his lower half involved through a knee pinch load. Hands move back fluidly during his forward movement before taking a nice, level path to the ball. Consistently squared balls up in batting practice. Above average strength and batspeed for a middle infielder. Reached a top exit velocity of 90 mph and ran a 6.82 60-yard dash. In the infield he does a good job of creating angles to field through the ball efficiently. Has quickness to his transfer before throwing across the infield with 84 mph arm strength. Has the skill set to stay at second base with the arm to move to third base if need be. On the mound he shows a max effort delivery. Lands on line at foot strike. Shows a loose, long back arm action into a high ¾ slot. Fastball sits 80-85 mph. Curveball shows very sharp break on a 11/5 plane sitting 72-76 mph. Changeup sat 74-75 mph.

2/13/16
A talented middle infielder with an athletic build at 5-foot-11, 165-pounds. In the infield he showed off fluid, athletic actions with the ability to remain athletic on the move. Fields the ball out in front of his body and does a good job of gaining ground to first base before he throws. From a high-3/4 slot he threw across the infield with 80 mph arm strength. At the plate he starts in an athletic stance and has very good rhythm throughout his loading sequence. Hands have gotten much better over the winter as they were much more loose and showed good whip through the zone. Took an impressive batting practice and registered a top exit velocity of 92 mph. Ran a 7.19 60-yard dash.

6-foot, 165-pound athletic build. On the mound he shows good rhythm in his delivery that requires some effort. Shows good direction to the plate, landing on line at foot strike. Finishes square to the plate. Throws with a long back arm action into a high ¾ slot. Three pitch mix with the fastball sitting 79-83 mph. Curveball sat 66-71 mph with sharp 11/5 break. Changeup sat 72-74 mph. At the plate he consistently found the barrel with good rhythm throughout his swing. Was able to produce a top exit velocity of 90 mph. In the infield he has athletic actions and confident hands. Through a ¾ slot he showed off 81 mph arm strength across the diamond. Ran an impressive 4.0 from home to first.
1/18/16
5-foot-11, 165-pound strong, athletic build. A good athlete that is a possible 2-way prospect at the next level. At the plate he starts in a slightly open, athletic set up. Does a good job of getting his hips initiated through a toe tap load and uses a bat tip to create more whip through the zone. Exit velocity was 84 mph. From shortstop he threw across the diamond from a loose, 3/4 slot with 84 mph arm strength. Used smooth, athletic footwork and was able to field the ball out in front of his body. Will need to eliminate some extra steps he between his fielding position and throwing the baseball. Ran a 7.14 60-yard dash. On the mound he showed good rhythm and direction to his max effort delivery. Showed quickness in his arm from a high 3/4 slot. Has an impressive 4-pitch mix with his fastball showing good life at 80-83 mph. Flashed a very sharp breaking, 67-69 mph curveball with good depth at an 11/5 tilt. Slider had good bite across the plate at 66-67 mph and had good feel for his 71-73 mph changeup. 

1/16/16
5-foot-11, 165-pound strong, athletic build. At the plate he starts with an athletic stance from the right side. Does a very good job of getting his lower half involved with a toe tap load and good weight transfer into contact. Has a tendency to get his hands tied up, would like to see more looseness with his upper half. A very good athlete, he showed good bat speed by registering an exit velocity of 86 mph. In the field he showed good footwork and threw from a 3/4 slot with 84 mph arm strength across the infield. Would like to see him field the ball more out in front and on the left side of his body. Ran a 7.14 60 yard dash. On the mound he had long, loose arm action from a 3/4 slot. He lands slightly closed at foot strike, but is still able to use his lower half effectively. His fastball sat 80-83 with late sink. His 10/4 shaped curveball was a good one, with a big, sharp break at 67-69 mph. Also displayed a slider that cut across the plate at 66-67 mph. Had very good feel for his 71-73 mph changeup. 

7/28/15
5-foot-11, 157-pound athletic build. Right-handed hitter with a good spread out set up and balanced. Shows a good load and a flat swing that stays thru the hitting zone. Registered top exit velocity of 84 mph and was 4.68 home to first. Defensively he shows above average skills especially for his age. Has good range to glove side and fields the ball out in front with a quick exchange. Really aggressive coming to get the baseball with 81 mph arm strength across the diamond.
