2/2/2019 Position
Body Type: 5-foot-8 135-pound prospect.
Swing Mechanics: Starts in a narrow, open stance. Uses a mini leg kick and had an uphill bat path. Balanced finish.
Hit: Average bat to ball ability.
Power: 77 mph exit velocity.
Offensive Projection:
Presently shows as mostly a line drive singles kind of guy. Did show the ability to spray the ball around the diamond.
Run: 7.34 60 yard dash.
Field: In the infield he showed decent feet and angles through the ball. Had a bit of a slow release and somewhat stiff hands at times.
Defensive Projection: Profiles as 2B type at the next level. Would benefit from improving hand quickness. 

6/19/18
A right-handed hitter that starts in an athletic stance. Goes with a knee pinch for timing as hands stay quiet throughout load. Swing is compact on a slightly downhill path. Compact stroke, A contact guy with feel for the barrel. Generated most natural ball flight to the middle of the field. In the outfield he plays fast with some fluidity to his actions. Looks mechanically sound with feel out there. Arm strength will need to improve before the next level. In the infield he offers a second baseman skill set. Reacts well off the bat and cuts down distance prior to fielding. Hands are soft and transfer is quick. Projects better in the infield than in the outfield.
Home to 1st: 4.82
Infield Velocity: 64
Outfield Velocity: 64
Exit Velocity: 71

 

2/3/18

Took one of the better BPs of the day. Looks athletic and fluid prior to launch where he does a nice job of staying balanced throughout swing. Creates angles to generate regular backspin to both sides of the field. Displayed impressive barrel feel, squaring the ball up with regularity. A contact guy who was spraying line drives all over the field. A versatile defender that can play both the infield and outfield at an above average clip. Right now he projects as more of a second baseman than an outfielder, mostly due to arm strength. Made a great diving play to his backhand during his defensive evaluation. Showed the feet/hands to stay in the middle.

60-yard dash: 7.83

Infield Velocity: 62

Outfield Velocity: 64

Exit Velocity: 74


 

2/5/17
5-foot-3, 105-pound prospect. At the plate he starts in a balanced setup. Uses a leg kick to initiate loading sequence. Hands stay simple during his stride. Swing is short and compact. A contact type guy that work in a middle away approach. In the outfield he showed quick footwork approaching the baseball. Fields the ball nicely, on his glove side foot. Would like to see him finish his throws. In the infield he uses quick footwork while taking direct routes to the ball on plays in his funnel. Does a nice job of playing low and has a very quick transfer. Made impressive play to his backhand side. On the mound, the 2020 prospect features a small, athletic build. Displays fluidity with tempo in delivery as he throws through a ¾ arm slot. Short arm action. Fastball consistently sits between 59-62 mph. His curveball offers 11/5 gradual break towards the plate as it ranges between 54-56 mph. Also mixes in a 54-55 mph changeup.

60-yard Dash: 8.04
Infield Velocity: 60
Outfield Velocity: 60
Exit Velocity: 60
