2/17/19

Body Type: 6-foot-1, 240 pounds. Sturdy build.

Swing Mechanics: Presented a knee to knee load out of his open stance. Shorter, compact uphill swing created by quick hands.

Hit: Saw some loud barrel action displayed during his round. Contact consistency developing as he plays more next few years.  

Power: 83 mph exit velocity. Pop inside his bat with more to follow

Offensive Projection: TBD for now.

Run: 9.15 seconds 60-yard.
Field: Presented playable glovework at the event as he fielded the baseball. Improvement coming in working through the baseball with greater momentum. Footwork is playable for his class. Third or first base potential.

Throw: 73 mph across the diamond.
Defensive Projection: First base or third base.

 

2/17 Pitching

Body Type: 6-foot-1, 240 pound strong frame

Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Throws slightly across body with an over the top arm action.

Fastball: 75-77 mph. Fastball stayed mostly straight, but showed life through the zone.

Curveball: 64-66 mph.12-6 shape that is continuing to develop.

Changeup: 69-72 mph. Showed good feel for change. Stayed straight, but showed some sink. Pounded zone.

Pitchability: Pounded the zone with a live fastball and straight change. Breaking ball is continuing to develop.

Additional Comments: Shows present strength and with increased movement quality should see increase in velocity.

Two-way prospect in the 2021 class. At the plate he starts in a balanced setup from the right side. Uses a short stride for timing as barrel gets to a vertical position prior to launch. Barrel accelerates through the zone on an uphill path getting in/out of the zone quickly. Offers more present strength than speed to bat. Middle of the lineup type with easy gap pop. At third base he has fluid feet with reliable glove skills. Smooth inside his funnel with developing lateral mobility.  On the bump the right-hander works with a slower paced delivery that requires some effort. Arm moves through a high-¾ slot with fastball sitting 74-77 mph. Also spins a breaking ball that shows signs of sharpness at 65-67 mph.
