8/5/18
5-foot-7, 120-pound. Left-handed pitching prospect with Ethan build. Slow tempo delivery that is compact and requires minimal effort, works in a good direction towards a plate with level shoulders. Fastball works out of a 3/4 slot with regular cutting action at 70 to 72 mph. Breaking ball works on a 1 to 7 playing at 62 to 64 mph with late bite.

5-foot-7, 120-pound. Left-handed hitting outfield prospect. Open stance with a big leg lift. Uses a short stroke to produce a 76 mph exit velocity. There’s some forward bat tilt prior to launch, barrel stays mostly level. Line drive type approach. Does a nice job playing through the ball from the outfield. Arm strength is presently average but does have some carry to it reaching a top velocity of 79 mph. Also ran a 4.65 home to first.

An athletic southpaw on the mound. Slower tempo delivery with easy leg lift requiring regular effort. Will see benefit from better incorporation of the lower half. Works through a near over the top slot. Fastball is thrown to both sides of the plate at 68-72 mph.  Curveball has 12/6 shape with gradual break at 60-61 mph and is the go to breaking ball. Shows the ability to locate that pitch in the zone. Change up shows arm side fade at 63-64 mph. Slider has 2/8 break with some sharpness at 59-61.As a defender uses an aggressive approach to the ball fielding out front. Footwork is average right now with room to improve. Quick, clean transfer before throwing through a ¾ slot with long arm action. A left-handed hitter that starts in an athletic stance. Athletic load full of well timed movements. Balanced launch with a slightly downhill path to contact. Swing is loose and whippy, offering both strength and speed to hands. Impressive feel for the barrel. Top of the lineup type guy that has much more pop to come as he adds strength. Solid round.
