Body Type: 6-foot-1, 155 pound lean, athletic build.
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Releases out of a lower ¾ arm slot displaying loose arm action. Lower half activated well as hips fire getting nice extension downhill and finishing with force.
Fastball: 83-87 mph. Pitch was electric with ball jumping out of his hand with smoothness. Sat 85-86 consistently and locates it very well.
Slider: 74-76 mph. Showed some sharp break that cuts from 10-4 and maintained it lower in the strike zone often.
Changeup: 63-68 mph. Displayed slight glove-side run with some depth. Threw for strikes but will improve movement as arm speed becomes more consistent prior to release.  
Pitchability: Showed a nice three-pitch mix of fastball, slider and changeup all with command. Brings great intent too behind each throw which will pay dividends as he continues to develop further. Projectable arm that will only improve. Will be seeing him pitch at the next level.
Role: Starter.

A solid defender in the infield. Plays fast using quick footwork as he attacks the baseball. Hands are soft and he showed the ability to keep ball skills on the move. Arm is on par for class. At the plate he starts in a tall, open setup. Shows a slight back load during his leg kick timing trigger. Barrel flows with rhythm through launch to accelerating on a downhill path to the baseball. A handsy hitter that has a table setter look to him presently. Should see more pop as he fills out athletic frame. Behind the dish he gets out of his mid crouch well, using fluid footwork. Transfer is very quick and arm action fits the spot. Liked what I saw from Maruna on the hill. Delivery is fluid without requiring much effort. Arm works very well through a high-¾ slot. Arm displayed obvious looseness and projects for more strength with physical maturity. Presently sits 74-77 mph with the fastball with much more in the tank. Spins two different breaking balls that can run into each other plane wise. With their similar shape the most noticeable difference is curve is a bit bigger with break with slider having tighter, sharper action. Also offers a playable changeup at 65-66 mph.

5-foot-10, 140-pound prospect. On the mound the righty has a slower paced windup that speeds up at balance point. Creates efficient energy with his lower half to home plate. Uses long back arm action with some quickness to his arm. Lands closed at foot strike creating a difficult angle for right-handed hitter. Works through a near ¾ slot putting natural run on his 73-75 mph fastball, topping at 76 mph. Showed off two different breaking balls. The better of the two was his slider that came in at 65-66 mph. Was able to use the pitch as a freeze pitch or break it off the plate. Also flashed a 10/4 shaped breaking ball that had gradual break at 59-63 mph. Also flashed a changeup at 66-67 mph. A contact type hitter that the plate that uses a toe turn load to get things started. Hands stay simple prior to taking a downhill, compact path to the ball. Consistently found the barrel in batting practice, producing line drives to the opposite field when he was at his best. Behind the plate he showed quickness to both his footwork and his transfer. Does a nice job of gaining ground to second with his feet. Throws were accurate, showing above average arm strength.
