2/12/19

Body Type: 6-foot-2, 180 pounds. Taller, lean build.
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Releases out of a ¾ arm slot with arm action that flows well through his delivery. Even paced tempo in hi smotion providing consistent rhythm.
Fastball: 77-79 mph. Little arm-side run to it out of the windup. Saw some fading glove-side run while out of his stretch.
Curveball: 60-61 mph. Showed 12-6 breaking action. Can work to get on top as he pulls it down. 
Changeup: 68-71 mph. Lighter tail arm-side. Grip is improving. 
Pitchability: Finishes taller out of the windup with all three pitches. Worked more efficiently from stretch overall getting downhill with more leg usage and located pitches more often.
Additional Comments: Projectable body with growth and strength still to come.

6-foot-1, 175-pound righty with an athletic build. Very rhythmic delivery using a rocker step to begin the motion that requires regular effort. Lands slightly closed at foot strike which works against the body a bit. Arm action is long through a high ¾ slot. Fastball shows occasional sink at 78-82 mph. Could be a ground ball type arm with continued development of that sinking fastball. Curveball is big breaker with near 12/6 action at 61-62 mph. Change up has fade to the arm side at 63-64 mph. Would expect a velo jump with physical maturity in the near future. Two-way prospect. At the plate he shows an athletic, fluid load from the right side. Strong kid with some bat speed. Strength is an above average tool for class. Barrel gets through the zone with authority, generating present jump and gap abilities. Middle type skill set. Behind the dish he starts in a low to mid crouch, showing some flexibility to hips. Gets out of stance with fluidity and solid direction. Exchange abilities are adequate but have room to quicken up. After his performance in the bump it shouldn’t come as a surprise that arm plays as a big tool behind the dish.

60-yard dash: 7.72
Pop Times: 2.16-2.31
Catcher Velocity: 73
Exit Velocity: 79

3/19/16

Mature build for his age at 5-foot-11, 145-pounds. Lucas uses a smooth tempo to a delivery that requires some effort. Working through a high-¾ slot he showed average armspeed and sat 67-70 mph with his fastball. His best offspeed pitch was his changeup that had some run at 60-61 mph and was thrown using fastball armspeed. Also flashed a 12/6 curveball that had gradual break at 53-56 mph. At the plate he showed fluid movements to create solid energy into contact. Bat works through the zone on a slightly downhill plane and he was able to consistently find the barrel in batting practice. Registered a top exit velocity of 64 mph. In the infield he showed confidence in his glove with some fluidity to his actions. Will need to continue to work on fielding the ball out in front of his body. Threw across the infield with mph arm strength. Ran a 7.94 60-yard dash.
