6/18/19

Body Type: 6-foot 3, 200-pound big build
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: The righty on the bump utilizes his strength into a power low leg drive motion toward the plate. Long arm stretch into a near ¾ release with a fall off to the first base side following his delivery.
Fastball: 77-82mph. Stays true through the zone. Solid command with a lot more room for added velo as he adds to his big frame. 1900-2100 rpms with a low efficiency spin rate resulting in a cut later in the zone.
Curveball: 63-68 mph. The break come in at a 10/4 path with tight sharp break that offers good depth. Still room for development as he matures his abilities on the mound. Comfortable throwing the spinner in all counts, works best when he gets ahead. 
Changeup:
Pitchability: Room for added velo and offspeed development as he ads to his frame and develops his craft on the bump. Average for his class.

An athletically built prospect at 6-foot-1, 185-pounds. Ball comes out well and is heavier than his 80-83 mph velocity would indicate and shows signs of more in the tank. Both secondary offerings are above average for class and he was able to stay in the zone for the most part. With his frame, velocity, and feel he should be a follow heading into the summer. Also impressed in the infield. Maintains tempo to and through the baseball. Footwork is sound and ball skills are above average. At the plate the right-hander starts in an open setup. Hands move slightly back during his short stride forward. Barrel triggers from a vertical setup, giving him easy whip and early bat speed. Bat is stronger than it is fast at this stage, generating easy gap to gap abilities. Middle of the lineup potential.

60-yard dash: 7.95
Infield Velocity: 75
Exit Velocity: 83

5-foot-10, 150-pound prospect. At the plate he starts open and gets back to even through a controlled stride. His vertical barrel gives him natural whip through the zone. Well above average bat speed and strength through contact. Showed gap to gap pop in batting practice, with flashes of power potential. Fits the mold of a middle of the order guy. In the infield he uses quick, direct footwork. Does a nice job of playing low on plays in his funnel. Tends to field from heels at times. Glove skills are above average for age. On the mound, the right handed pitcher uses his athleticism creating a smooth tempo delivery to the plate. Arm speed displays some quickness while he throws through a high ¾ arm slot. Features a 72-76 mph fastball that displays consistent arm-side run. His curveball displays average depth as it falls on an 11/5 plane; sits between 61-63 mph. Keeps changeup low in the zone at 65-66 mph. Also mixes in a 62-65 mph slider.

60-yard Dash: 8.38
Infield Velocity: 67
Exit Velocity: 88
