Scout Evaluation 


2/12/20 Position Player
Hit:Right-handed hitter that starts in an athletic setup. Fluid, efficient load that leads to a mostly balanced launch. Solid showing. Physical for class with feel for contact. Ball comes off his bat well and he can backspin it to both gaps.
Power:Gap abilities.
Offensive Projection:Run Producer.
Top BP Rapsodo Exit Velocity:86
Top BP Rapsodo Distance: 268
Field:Good athlete with a nice combination of size and athleticism over at first base. Feel for the spot with impressive lateral mobility off the bag. Ball skills are above average for the position as well
Throw:More than enough strength for the spot.
Defensive Projection:1B.

2/12/20 Pitching
Delivery Notes:Projectable frame. on the mound the righty works with good tempo to a delivery that requires some effort. High-3/4 slot with a balanced combination of strength and speed to arm.
Fastball:Mostly true through the zone with occasional running action. 75-78 mph.
Fastball Spin Rate:1670-1730
Curveball:11/5 shape with big action and developing depth. Should only get sharper as velo jumps and he tosses it in the zone frequently. 60-62 mph.
Curveball Spin Rate:1670-1690
Changeup:Decent sell on the offering that has some fading action to it.
Pitchability:Strike thrower.


Body Type:  6-foot, 160-pound thin frame.

Swing Mechanics:  Simple load with minimal movements.  Hands stay loose and loaded.

Hit:  Slight downhill bat path with a middleback approach.

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

Offensive Projection:  TBD.
Field: A first baseman with above average athleticism for the position. Glove works decent over there and he looks to have feel for the spot.
Throw: Arm plays at the position.
Defensive Projection:  1B. 

Body Type: 6-foot, 160-pound athletic frame.
Swing Mechanics: Right-handed hitter that starts in a wider stance. Uses a back load to hands during toe turn timing trigger.
Hit: Uphill path with some lag through the zone. Swing offers more present strength than speed but young so that could change with physical maturity. Rollyson was able to consistently backspin the ball to middle of field. Long lever type with much more pop to come.
Power: 72 mph exit velocity. Present line drive pop with more inthe tank.
Offensive Projection: Middle Ceiling.
Run:  7.89 60-yard dash.
Field: Frame for the first base position. Moves off the bag well and does a nice job creating throwing lanes prior to fielding. Glove skills are above average.
Throw: Long, clean arm that should have more strength to come.
Defensive Projection: 1B.

2/6/19 Pitching

Body Type: 6-foot, 160 pounds. Taller, thin frame.
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Releases out of a higher ¾ arm slot showing longer arm action that gets through well in his delivery. Lower half engagement is improving.

Fastball: 68-73 mph. Slight arm-side run displayed with progressing accuracy.
Curveball: 52-57 mph. Has a higher break to it with 11-4 action. Arm speed slows down on this pitch but looked to locate it well.  

Changeup: 52-57 mph. Later arm-side tail to it. His better off-speed pitch for now.

Pitchability: Young righty that has size and strength for his class. Four years to develop and potential is there in abilities. Will be interesting to see how he develops.

Role:  TBD.
