A righty swinger that starts in a tall setup. Uses a simple load prior to launching form front side. Compact swing with noticeable quickness through the zone. Barrel has some whip and authority in there as well. Can get around the ball at times but showed natural ball flight when he stayed through contact. Line drive guy with flashes of gap abilities. Also had a solid showing behind the dish. Looked comfortable in game and showed above average catch/throw skills in his workout.

A right-handed hitter that starts in a taller stance. Hands stay relatively simple during his short stride for timing. Swing is compact with noticeable quickness to hands. More strength through the zone than frame would suggest as well. A line drive type now with flashes of gap pop and more to come with physical maturity. Really quick bat. Also showed well behind the dish. Feet are quick and exchange skills are clean. Arm action fits the position with above average strength for class. Tossed with accuracy to second base. In the infield he showed quick feet and soft hands. Can create angles and has some rhythm through fielding. Ball skills are above average for class.

5-foot-8, 150 pound athletic catcher showed explosive actions behind the plate. Foot speed was quick getting into a strong throwing position. Ball to hand transfer was smooth. Showed nice receiving ability throughout his pens. Plus arm strength and throws on a line at 72 mph. Pop times were 2.11-2.21 seconds. At the plate he goes with a leg kick for timing while keeping hands simple prior to launch. A back leg hitter that takes an uphill path to the baseball. Combination of path is barrel feel allows him to lift the baseball naturally. That skill will come in handy as pop increases with physical maturation. Natural tools are developing with more present strength than speed to his hands. With his ability to lift the baseball he is a candidate to be an extra base hit threat as bat speed catches up to strength.
60-yard dash: 7.69
Pop Times: 2.12-2.29
Catcher Velocity: 72
Exit Velocity: 82

 

5/31/17
A right-handed hitter that starts in an athletic setup. Contact type hitter with a short, compact swing. Mechanically simple and takes a slightly uphill path to the ball. Works through a middle-away approach. Bat speed is developing. In the outfield he plays smooth and under control. Plays through the ball well, maintaining momentum into his throws. Arm strength will be area for improvement. Start in a mid crouch behind the plate. Footwork is quick and creates correct direction. Transfer skills are above average for his age. Ideal arm action for the position.

 Home to First: 4.68
Catcher Velocity: 68
Pop Time: 2.46-2.59
Exit Velocity: 81

5-foot-7, 135-pound prospect. Young guy with plenty of physical maturation to go. Starts in a slightly open stance behind the plate. Starts on his heels. Gets long at times with his footwork. Short arm action through high ¾ slot. Pop times ranged between 2.11 to 2.21. Offensively, he has the look of a contact guy with an efficient swing. Does a nice job of gathering his weight prior to his forward movement. Swing is compact on a slightly downhill path. Showed feel for the barrel. Would like to see him add fluidity to his loading sequence.

60 Yard Dash: 7.61
Position Velocity: 72
Pop Time: 2.11-2.22
Exit Velocity: 75



7/6/16
5-foot-8, 130-pound thin, projectable body frame. Right-handed hitter starts from a tall stance, using a knee high leg kick to gain additional power to his swing. Has a fluid load with his hands moving to his back shoulder. Swings with a level bat path through the zone, finishing with a two-handed follow through. Recorded a top exit velocity of 78 mph and ran a 7.59 60-yard dash.  From behind the plate, he shows average footwork. Transitions smoothly into a high ¾ slot with 66 mph arm strength. Pop times ranging 2.37-2.45. On the mound, his delivery requires some effort. Throws through a high ¾ slot with the fastball sitting 68-72 mph. Curveball sat 58-62 mph and the changeup sat 64-66 mph.

2/20/16
