Body Type: 6-foot 175-pound prospect with an athletic build.
Swing Mechanics: Starts with a somewhat narrow setup but remains balanced. He starts his swing with a toe tap load and hands compact to his body with a slight wrist cock of the bat. He showed an on plane bat path and kept his barrel in the zone. Seemed to have quick hands and the ball jumped.
Hit: Good bat to ball ability with solid barrel control.
Power: 91 mph exit velocity.
Offensive Projection: Shows potential to be a gap to gap kind of bat.
Run: 4.45 home to 1st.
Field: From the outfield he showed adequate footwork and a quick arm. Needs to improve his ability to play through the ball. In the infield he showed pretty good hands and average feet. Needs to improve his skill in the infield but shows pretty good athleticism.
Throw: 77 mph throw across the infield, and 79 mph throw from the outfield.
Defensive Projection: Looks to be more of a corner outfield type at the next level. Raw skills and athleticism seem to fit better in the outfield than the infield.

Liked what I saw at the plate. Movements are fluid and create energy into contact. Nice, level path with a nice combination of strength and speed to hands. Ball jumps when squared. Good athlete that will have a carrying hit tool when it all comes together. In the infield he is very fluid/reacts well off the bat. Not flashy but reliable defender. Second baseman look to him. Very sure-handed, solid defender. Also worked out in the outfield. Corner type whose infielder background shows in ball skills. How arm develops will likely determine future destination. Although he looks more developed in the infield he also worked out in the outfield where he is more than enough of an athlete to grow into an above average defender out there as well. 

60-yard dash: 7.26
Infield Velocity: 76
Outfield Velocity: 77
Exit Velocity: 85

A right-handed hitter that starts in a tall stance. Athletic load that leads to balanced launch. Level path with some natural loft. Strong kid with above average bat speed. Loose, whippy swing that generates impressive jump of the barrel. All fields approach with gap to gap abilities. In the outfield he plays under control to and through. Ball skills are on par for class. Corner type. Also looked to be an adequate defender behind the dish.

Home to 1st: 4.53
Pop Times: 2.13-2.27
Catcher Velocity: 70
Outfield Velocity: 77
Exit Velocity: 90

A righty swinger that starts in a balanced setup. Hands stay simple during his small leg lift for timing. Level path with more present strength than speed through the zone. Showed line drive capabilities in BP with flashes of gap pop. Middle of the lineup potential. At third base he uses direct feet too and showed soft hands through. Does a nice job cutting down distance off the bat. Arm is accurate with developing strength.

Home to 1st: 4.42
Pop Times: 2.18-2.25
Catcher Velocity: 65
Infield Velocity: 75
Exit Velocity: 87

5-foot-11, 175 pound catching prospect with a sturdy frame starts out from a tall wide stance out of his crouch. Showed average footwork getting aligned with his target. Received the ball well sticking many in his pen and can improve on consistency. Ball to hand transfer is developing is quickness. Arm strength was average at 69 mph down to second base. Pop times were 2.19-2.28 seconds. In the middle infield he showed soft hands while fielding it well each attempt. Footwork is still developing in quickness and angles taken. Will come as he gets older. Threw 70 mph across the diamond.  At the plate Leve put together an impressive performance in BP. A line drive type with gap abilities from the right side. A feel hitter that finds plane early and has the strength to accelerate the barrel through contact with ease. Definite bat to follow.

60-yard dash: 7.54
Pop Times: 2.19-2.28
Catcher Velocity: 69
Infield Velocity: 70
Exit Velocity: 85

11/18/17

Ran a 4.56 from home to first. Impressed at the plate. Goes with a toe turn to initiate lower half while taking hands back to launch. Barrel travels on a level plane to the baseball showing noticeable whip. Natural tools are obvious and the ball comes off his bat very well. A line drive type guy presently who should grow into more of a power threat as he matures physically and he learns to use lower half more efficiently. Top exit velocity was 86 mph. In the outfield he uses quick, mechanically sound footwork in his approach. Plays through the ball cleanly and transitions smoothly into his throws through a pro step. Displayed 72 mph arm strength to home plate.
