7/09/19

1/26/19 Pitching

Body Type: 6-foot-2 180-pound prospect with projectable frame.
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Shows rhythm through a compact and efficient delivery. Works out of a short arm action through a ¾ slot with minimal effort.
Fastball: 72-75 mph fastball works downhill with occasional cutting action to the glove side.
Curveball: 62-65 mph breaking ball has slurvy 11/5 action with fairly sharp break.
Changeup: 67-70 mph changeup is thrown with good arm speed and offers late sinking action.
Pitchability: Offers a true three pitch mix and shows solid command of all three pitches. Breaking ball is the best offering and looks like his “out” pitch. Changeup is playable and pairs well with the fastball.
Role: Too early to tell. Has a solid frame to build on, as well as good feel for three pitches. A possible starter role in the future isn’t out of the question as he refines his secondary pitches and adds velocity to the fastball.

7/17/18
A right-handed hitter that starts in a balanced stance. Load is fluid yet efficient. Launches from a balanced setup and takes a slightly downhill path to contact. Long lever type who can do damage when he gets extend. Upside bat with much more to come as he adds strength. Ball comes off well, showing middle of the lineup traits. Frame fits the third base position. Fluid feet with soft hands. Can get around the baseball at times. Moves well outside of funnel with ball skills staying on the move. Rangy defender that can cover a lot of ground. Arm plays on the left side. Two-way prospect. Ideal pitchers frame at 6-foot-1, 180-pounds with long limbs and a high waist. Fluid delivery that doesn’t require a ton of effort. Long back arm action through a high-¾ slot. Gets down the mound well, finishing towards first base. Fastball stays mostly true through the zone at 73-76 mph. Compliments the fastball with a big, 11/5 shaped breaking ball at 60-61 mph. Showed decent feel for the offering that looks to be his put away pitch.

Infield Velocity: 74

Scouting Report: 6-foot-1, 180-pound body frame. From the infield he has adequate footwork while approaching the baseball, transitioning into his throws. Hands have a tendency to stay back while fielding, would like to see his hands stay more out in front of his body. Throws with a clean arm action through a ¾ slot reaching a top velocity of 72 mph across the infield. Right-handed hitter starts his swing from a relaxed position. Hands get to a good launch position before finishing his swing with a two-handed follow through. Showed the ability to use the whole field during his round of batting practice, recorded a top exit velocity of 81 mph and ran an 8.10 60-yard dash. On the mound he uses regular effort to his delivery and offers a three-pitch mix. Has a high, straight up and down leg kick, landing in a straight line at foot strike, and finishes with his momentum carrying in good direction toward home plate. Throws with average arm speed through an upper ¾ slot. His fastball ranges from 72-76 mph. His curveball breaks on an 11/5 plane with good depth, and signs of late break to it between 60-63 mph. Throws his changeup using fastball arm speed, with the pitch having some arm-side run to it at times between 64-65 mph.
