Notes

Comments

6/13/16
6-foot-2, 202-pound athletic frame. Stronger than he is fast at the plate. Uses a toe turn to load his lower half before taking a flat path to the ball. Better to his pull side at this stage. Reached a top exit velocity of 78 mph and ran a 4.95 from home to first. Behind the plate his best tool is his blocking ability. Has average transfer skills and will need to speed up footwork.  Pop times ranged from 2.17-2.33, and threw with 71 mph arm strength to second base.

2/20/16
Big strong framed right hander on the bump. Throws through a ¾ slot with short arm action. Fastball showed some consistent movement arm-side while sitting between 79-82 mph. Breaking ball moved on an 11/5 plane at 69-71 mph. Uses near fastball arm speed with his changeup that offers some fading action at 73-76 mph. At the plate he uses a simple double tap load for timing and weight transfer. Has good rhythm throughout his loading sequence and squared a fair amount of balls up in batting practice. Registered a top exit velocity 80 mph. Behind the dish had good direction towards second base with decent quickness to his transfer. Pop times ranged from 2.12-2.2, and he threw with 68 mph arm strength. Ran a 4.79 from home to first.

7/15/15
6-foot-1, 190-pound projectable frame. Right-handed hitter with a spread out stance and balanced. Uses a good load with a good bat path. Registered top exit velocity off a tee of 79 mph and ran a 5.05 home to first. Behind the plate he starts with a wide base. He tends to open to early on his footwork with a quick transfer. Throws from a high-3/4 slot with pop times ranging from 2.2-2.29 and 70 mph arm strength.
2/16/15
6-foot-1, 190-pound athletic build. From behind the plate he tends to open too early on his footwork. He winds up on his throw from a ¾ slot with good accuracy. Pop times ranged between 2.37-2.51 and 68 mph arm strength to second. Right-handed hitter that sits down in his legs with good balance. Short stride with a flat path, but tends to cut off his swing with no extension. Registered top exit velocity of 71 mph and ran 8.01-60.

11/2/14
6-foot, 190-pound solid body for his age. From behind the plate he has a tendency to wind up when he throws from a high-¾ slot. Pop times range from 2.44-2.51 and 68 mph arm strength home to second base. Right-handed hitter with a good set up and starts with his hands back. Leg kick to load with flat path and 67 mph exit velocity and ran a 8.33 60-yard dash.
