8/04/19

Body Type: 5-foot-8, 186-pound physical frame.
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Moves well out there. Drop and drive type with a very mobile lower half. ¾ lefty with arm speed and signs of more to come. Three-pitch southpaw that could add value to a college program.
Fastball: 79-80 mph. 1800-2100 rpm guy with low 90s spin efficiency.
Curveball: 64-66 mph. 1/7 shaped breaking ball with signs of sharpness. Looked comfortable with the offering.
Changeup: 72-73 mph. Used the pitch often and for good reason. Ball comes out well with late run, sink to it.
Pitchability: Strike thrower. 

2/09/19

Body Type: 5-foot-8, 186-pound prospect.
Swing Mechanics: Balanced stance with a toe turn timing trigger and simple hands.
Hit: Swing plays. Physical bat with above average bat speed. Path has natural loft to it with the ability to run into the baseball often. Very impressive BP with the ability to lift the ball consistently.
Power: Easy gap pop with the ability to leave the yard. 90 mph exit velocity.
Offensive Projection: Middle of the Lineup.
Run: 7.78 60-yard dash.
Field: Gets off the bag well at first base. Quick feet with above average lateral mobility. Ball skills are above average for class.
Throw: ¾ lefty with some whip to arm. More than enough strength for first base position. 76 mph arm strength across the diamond.
Defensive Projection: 1B.

2/07/19

Body Type: 5-foot-8, 186-pound prospect. 
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: ¾ to sidearm lefty with an uptempo delivery. Looks comfortable/has feel for the spot. 
Fastball: 74-77 mph. Ball comes out well, creating a tough angle on hitters, especially guys from the left side. 
Curveball: 66-67 mph. 2/8, sweeping breaking ball that has a nice combination of depth and sharpness to it. Raises slot a bit on the offering. Above average pitch. 
Changeup: 70-72 mph. Similar look to fastball with some added dip. Looks comfortable with the offering. 
Pitchability: Showed feel for all three. 
Additional Comments: Slot and ability to compete in the zone make him an asset at the next level. Ideally a matchup guy with the change up being good enough to give righties some fits as well.
