Body Type: 6-foot-1, 215-pound medium frame.
Mechanical/Delivery Notes:
Smooth delivery and arm action but could use size to advantage better throughout delivery.
Fastball:
71-75 mph.
Curveball:
63-64 mph with 12/6 movement.
Pitchability:
Needs to throw both pitches more consistently in the zone.
Additional Comments:
Velocity and command can increase with a more repeatable and efficient delivery.

 

Body Type: 6-foot-1, 215-pound medium frame.
Swing Mechanics:
Wide base, swing relies more on strength than quickness.
Hit:
Hands stay inside, barrel works thru the zone. Made consistent hard contact driving the ball into the gaps.
Power:
Present gap to gap power. 93 mph exit velocity.
Offensive Projection:
Middle third of the order.
Run:
4.97 H to 1st.
Field:
Moves well on the infield, not as smooth coming out of the crouch. Fairly clean on the transfers. Needs to do a better job playing thru the ball.
Throw:
72 mph from behind the plate. 76 mph on throws across the diamond.
Defensive Projection:
Too early to tell. May need to move to first base in the future.
Additional Comments:
The bat is the best tool. Shows the potential for legit power. Will need to improve defensively moving forward.

6-foot-0, 201-pound projectable build. The young right-hander has some looseness through a long arm action throwing through a ¾ slot. Quick tempo delivery that is a little rushed right now and requires some effort. Uses a high lift. Has good direction while landing slightly closed. At 73-76 mph his fastball was mostly straight. At times, when thrown to the arm side the pitch had some run to it. His 12/6 curveball had gradual break at 65-66 mph. Also, showed a 68-69 mph changeup that was thrown with good arm speed a late sink. A right-handed hitter that starts tall before getting lower during his stride. Barrel wraps behind head prior to launch. A strong kid with some bat speed. Ball came off his bat well when he found the barrell. Bat gets in and out of the zone quickly. Was at his best when he worked the left-center gap. A third baseman that has uses fluid footwork. Moves very well to his forehand side and showed confidence in his glove. Would like to see him play lower.

60-yard dash: 8.57
Exit Velocity: 79
Infield Velocity: 72
