2/16/19

Body Type: 5-foot-10 157-pound prospect.

Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Throws from a low ¾ arm slot with some drop and drive elements to his delivery, but he still doesn’t seem to get much out of his lower half. Arm works well.

Fastball: 76-79 mph fastball showed some arm side run.

Breaking Ball: 65-67 mph breaking ball showed slider shape and spin with minimal action and bite.

Pitchability: Average feel and command for his two pitch mix.

Role: Shows a slider that could develop into a quality offering. Also shows solid velocity for a 2022. Should be a guy who could develop into a quality high school starter. 

Body Type: 5-foot-10, 157 pounds. Athletic frame with room to add.
Swing Mechanics:
Saw a shorter loading process to go with his closed stance after striding. Gives an uphill bat path in his swing.

Hit: Hits with a more backside approach making average contact overall for his class.
Power:
77 mph exit velocity. Had signs of power shown in some of his swings with barrel action. Progress to come as he grows more.
Offensive Projection: Multiple role potential from him through development process.

Run: 4.97 seconds home to first.
Field:  2.10-2.16 second pop time. Receives it well for his class. Footwork is improving with quickness and alignment towards second. Transfer process was nice too. Can improve on
Throw:
74 mph from behind the plate.
Defensive Projection:
Catcher.
