Power:Gap to gap pop.
Offensive Projection:Multiple roles.
Max BP Exit Velocity:88 mph
Max BP Distance: 300 ft
Field:Versatile defender who showed athleticism/arm strength in both the infield and outfield. Solid defender.

2/17/20

2/17/20 Position Player
Hit: High follow in 2023 class, athletic mover in the box with a level path, fast bat with strength through contact, ball comes off well and he utilizes both gaps, generates natural backspin, only going to get better as strength arrives.
Power: 82 mph tee exit velocity, flashed gap abilities, much more to come. 
Offensive Projection: Multiple roles.
Field: Talented defender that can play multiple spots with his combination of athleticism and arm strength potential, feet work well and he can create angles, grades out higher as an infielder presently but that bat will keep him in the lineup and he’s more than serviceable in the outfield.
Throw: Top infield velocity was 72 mph across the diamond and top outfield velocity was 79 mph to home plate, clean arm with higher velocity ceiling.
Defensive Projection: UTL.

6/12/19

Body Type: 5-foot-9, 135-pound athletic frame.
Swing Mechanics:  Left-handed hitter that starts in an athletic stance. Quiet hands during leg kick timing trigger.
Hit: Compact stroke with loose hands that generate natural whip. Catches the ball nicely out in front of home plate, leading to easy lift. Swing is efficient and can use both sides of the field with a bit more present pop to pull.
Power: Line drive pop with more to come.
Offensive Projection: Table setter.
Field: An aggressive defender in the infield that plays fast. Feet work well, doing a nice job of creating angles for some rhythm in his play through. Looks to be a sure-handed defender.
Throw: Long back arm action with some jump out of the hand.
Defensive Projection: Multiple Spots in the infield. 

3/03/19

Body Type: 5-foot-8, 130-pounds with average, athletic build

Hit: The LHH gets off back side well. His hands stay inside and swings with authority. Has athletic movements in his load and has good rhythm. He has plus swinging mechanics with natural loft

Power: Gap to gap, opposite field hitter

Offensive Projections: Top order (72 exit velocity)

Defensive Projection: 2B

3/4/18
5-foot-3, 108 pound right handed pitching prospect has a tall, lanky build to him. He throws out of a ¾ arm slot with average mechanics while producing an even tempo throughout his motion. Finish was taller at the end of some releases. Fastball sat 65-68 mph with arm side run and nice command. His changeup was thrown at 62-64 mph with glove side run and kept it low. Offensively this left handed hitter has a level bat path that made nice contact during his round. Lower half is developing in generating energy. Showed average power. Exit velocity was 64 mph. In the infield he displayed quick feet and soft hands. Plays low through the baseball with developing ball skills. Middle infielder skill set who’s arm strength will likely determine which position he ends up at.
60-yard dash: 8.32
Infield Velocity: 64
Exit Velocity: 64
