2/02/19

Body Type: 5-foot-10, 150-pound athletic frame.
Swing Mechanics: Right-handed hitter that starts in an tall, open setup. Uses a fluid back load to hands with a leg kick timing trigger.
Hit: Athletic, fluid actions in the box. Balanced swinger with feel for contact. Compact stroke with balanced natural tools. Line drive guy that can backspin it. One of the top BPs we saw on the day.

Offensive Projection: 3-Hole, Multiple Roles.
Run: 4.68 H-1st.
Field: In the infield he plays quickly, moving light on his feet. Very solid defender with above average ball skills for class. Middle look to him. Well coached.
Throw: 74 mph. Arm works well, projecting to add even more strength to his already above average arm.
Defensive Projection: MIF.

Body Type: 5-foot-10, 150-pound athletic frame. 
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Athletic delivery that he can repeat. Ball comes out easy. Loose, whippy arm that projects for much more strength as he matures. 
Fastball: 73-78 mph. Comes out of a ¾ slot with routine run to it. Candidate for velocity jump with his loose arm and athleticism. 
Curveball: 61-63 mph. 11/5 shaped breaking ball. Spins it well, giving it some depth with big action. 
Changeup: Good pitch at 65-68 mph. Maintains arm speed on the offering that has noticeable dip to it as it enters the zone.

1/28/18

A mechanically sound infielder with efficient footwork. Ball skills are above average and he does a nice jon of gaining ground during transfer. Solid infielder who made all the plays in defensive evaluation. Took a very impressive round of BP. Pre launch movements are athletic, creating energy and balance. Swing is whippy with above average strength to hands. Generates high output with lower input. Definite bat to follow. A tall and fall type guy on the mound that has three pitches to his arsenal. Fastball runs a bit, sitting 69-73 mph. Ball comes out well with little effort. Expect more velocity in the near future. Breaking ball shows some bite with potential for more depth at 57-58 mph. Slows arm a bit on a changeup that was regularly in the zone.
