2/18/22

Parker Harden: 1B/RHP, (2025) Pickerington Central, OH. 6-foot-4, 260-pound. At the plate, the right-handed hitter's best exit velocity was 81 mph. Begins in a balanced tall stance with a controlled compact load, then uses a small leg kick. Bat speed was efficient, displayed a loose level swing plane and high finish. Solid while in the infield, made throws up to 67 mph; has a clean exchange, choppy feet, and firm hands. Movements laterally were athletic and he fields the ball out front. Showed a high ¾ slot with a loose arm action. On the mound, showed consistent arm speed, he had a loose arm action and a high ¾ arm angle. Tall-and-fall type pitcher and uses easy effort. Threw his fastball 69-70 mph. Had slight running action. (Max spin ; Avg ). Had slurvey action on his 11/5 curveball (60-62). (Max spin ; Avg ). He had slight action on his changeup (60-63). His 10/4 slider (60-62) had late action. (Max spin ; Avg ). 


9/20/20

Hit: Smooth stroke with natural strength behind it. Stays within himself, consistently working inside the baseball. Run producer potential.
Power: Flashed gap abilities.
Offensive Projection:  Middle of lineup.
Max BP Exit: 82mph.
Max BP Distance: 263ft.
Field: Frame/skill set play over at first base. Looks comfortable at the spot with developing ball skills.
Throw: Clean arm with more to come.
Defensive Projection: 1B.

Scouting Notes: Very physical, imposing prospect for class at 6-foot-2, 215-pounds. Moves well on the mound with good feel for his delivery. Ball comes out of a 3/4 slot and is very easy out of the hand. Fastball has regular artm side action and he complements heater with a slurvish breaking ball that shows signs of sharpness. Completing his arsenal is a changeup that was very impressive at times. Definite arm to keep an eye one.
Fastball:  65-69mph.
Fastball Spin Rates: 1480-1550rpm.
Breaking Ball: 55-57mph.
Breaking Ball Spin Rates: 1430-1510rpm.
