7/09/19

Body Type: 5-foot-11, 155-pound thin frame.
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: A high leg kick setting up a dip and drive lower half that has an ok arm action with a few hitches in it but still far from robotic from a ¾ arm slot.
Fastball: 75-77mph. Arm side movement on a pitch that is kept low in the zone. Comfortable with the outside corner. 1,700-1,900 spin rate with low 90% efficiency on Rapsodo.
Curveball: 65-68mph curveball on a 12/6 plane with more depth over action. Thrown in the zone consistently when ahead in the count.
Pitchability: In the zone consistently.

Hit:  Downhill bat path with a pull side approach.  Produces natural ball flight to the middle part of the field.
Power: Line drive pop with more to come as strength arrives. 76.8 off the bat in BP.
Offensive Projection: Top of the lineup look to him.
Field: In the infield he plays with quiet feet and controlled tempo. Showed the ability to create angles. Good rhythm to sequence.
Throw: Accurate thrower.
Defensive Projection: 2B. 

6/25/19

Body Type: 5-foot-11, 155-pound athletic frame.

Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Could incorporate lower half more, weight goes towards 3rd base instead of home plate. Lower arm action during load phase.

Fastball: 73-75mph. Arm side movement. Comfortable locating on the outside corner. A solid offering to work off of.

Curveball: 63-66mph. 10/5 movement with more depth over action. Tended to leave pitch up in the zone.

Pitchability: In the zone most of the time with fastball. In the zone some of the time with curveball.  

 

 

Body Type:  5-foot-11, 155-pound athletic frame.

Swing Mechanics:  Open stance with a simple load into his back leg.  Keeps his hands loose and loaded.

Hit:  Downhill bat path with a pull side approach.  Natural ball flight to the middle part of the field.

Power:  Line drive guy right now with more to come as he develops, and adds size.

Offensive Projection:  TBD.
Field: In the infield he plays under control with an easy tempo throughout sequence. Hands are soft and  ball skills are reliable. Solid defender.
Throw: Arm plays up due to quick transfer. Accurate thrower.
Defensive Projection: 2B. 

1/26/19 Pitching

Body Type: 5-foot-10 152-pound prospect with room to add strength.

Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Quick tempo delivery that is compact and efficient. Works out of a long arm action through a low-3/4 slot.

Fastball: 73-74 mph fastball is mostly straight working on a downward plane with slight sinking action.

Curveball: 62-65 mph curveball works on an 11/5 tilt with developing depth. Pitch has good rotation and should sharpen up with improved hand speed.

Changeup: N/A

Pitchability: Only offers two pitches but showed ability to command both. Breaking could become and above average offing in the future.


1/26/19 Position

Body Type: 5-foot-10 152-pound prospect with room to add strength.

Swing Mechanics: Starts in a medium set up and uses a front hip hinge to initiate his load. Showed quick hands and remained balanced throughout his swing. Cast his barrel a bit around the zone and showed a flatter bat path.

Hit: Good bat to ball ability and barrel control.

Power: 76 mph exit velocity.

Offensive Projection: Present swing would probably limit him to a line drive singles and hard ground balls type of approach. Speed could help stretch some things into extra base hits.

Run: 4.46 home to 1st.

Throw: 73 mph across the diamond.

Field: Showed pretty good angles and footwork in the infield. Arm action could be cleaned up to produce more carry on his throws.

Defensive Projection: Shows potential to project as 2B type guy at the next level with enough speed to also potentially fill in at LF.

7/17/18

A right-handed hitter that starts in a balanced stance. Uses a simple loading sequence that creates a balanced launch. Contact hitter with a downhill path. Offers more present quickness than strength through the zone. Sneaky pop for frame to pull side. Should see more juice as physical maturation takes its course. A middle infielder that plays under control in his approach. Flashed the ability to create angles and maintain rhythm through fielding. Soft hands with an accurate arm. Second baseman type skill set.

Home to 1st: 4.5

Infield Velocity: 69

Exit Velocity: 70
