5/30/18

Very well built prospect that doesn’t look like he just graduated the 8th grade physically. Shows a slight back load with hands during leg kick timing trigger. Launches from a balanced position. Taking a slightly uphill path to contact. Strength is slightly ahead of bat speed but both tools are well above average for class. Physical kid with athleticism. Definite tools to work with. In the outfield he uses shorter footwork and plays under control in his approach. Plays through the baseball well on glove foot side. Athleticism shows out there and he plays with confidence.

Infield Velocity: 67
Outfield Velocity: 70
Exit Velocity: 78


3/4/18
In the infield he cuts distance off the bat using direct footwork. Hands are soft and ball skills are average to slightly above average. Can play from heels at times. Transfer is fluid prior to showing developing arm strength across the diamond. In the outfield he looks comfortable and athletic. Footwork is mechanically sound and fluid.  Transfer is very clean and arm is accurate to home plate. A talented, versatile defender. At the plate the righty starts in a balanced setup. Hands stay simple during his leg kick timing trigger and controlled stride. Path is downhill with noticeable strength and speed to hands. Ball jumps off the barrel with his natural loft allowing him to create lift without sacrificing natural tools. A bat to follow as he shows signs of a future run producer down the road.
60-yard dash: 7.66
Infield Velocity: 68
Outfield Velocity: 75
Exit Velocity: 78

5-foot-8, 155 pound outfielder with a smaller build showed a solid glove defensively fielded it cleanly. Displayed nice footwork as he gets to the side of the ball well getting in to a strong position to field it. Does a nice job taking momentum through the ball into his release. Throwing velocity was 74 mph. Put together a solid performance in BP. Actions are athletic and movements sync well prior to launch. Swing is compact with some natural loft in there. Although strength grades out higher than bat speed but both tools are well above average for class. A young, physical bat to follow.
60-yard dash: 7.73
Outfield Velocity: 74
Exit Velocity: 82

 

1/21/18
A switch hitter that starts in a tall setup from the right side.. Uses an easy back load during his leg kick timing mechanism. Barrel whip through the zone on a slightly uphill path. Bat speed is an above average tool and he displayed strength to his hands at contact. Has small mechanical things to clean up but the natural tools are there. From the left he look similar mechanically. Natural tools are quiet from left side, showing a more compact/controlled swing. In the outfield he plays fast while remaining under control in his approach. Fields the ball nicely on his glove foot side. Could eliminate an extra step after fielding and prior to release. A second baseman type in the infield. Feet are fast and he plays low to/through the baseball. Tends to field from heels at times and would be aided by creating angles to play through the ball more efficiently. Glove is on par for class.
60-Yard Dash: 7.38
Infield Velocity: 68
Outfield Velocity: 75
Exit Velocity: 82

1/27/18
5-foot-8, 155 pound outfielder had great forward momentum in his swing as he gets good use from him legs. Calhoun Jr. doesn’t create much separation, but he barreled up several balls in his round with good pop.  His exit velo was 81 which can be increased if he can create more tension in his load and relax his grip for the bat to flow more easily through the zone. As an outfielder, he fielded it well, but could improve on getting into a better position to attack the ball and generate more energy into his throws. His velocity from the outfield was 75 mph and there’s more in there as he stopped his momentum after throws. John has plenty of time to work and develop his talents as a 2022 grad.
