Notes

Comments

5/28/19

Body Type: 6-foot-1, 170-pound thin athletic frame.
Mechanical/Delivery Notes:
Smooth and tight arm action that is on time. More left in the lower half.
Fastball:
77-80 mph. Velo could increase with incorporation of lower half into delivery.
Curveball:
66-70 mph. 11/5 movement thrown in the zone.
Pitchability:
Throws both pitches for strikes keeping hitters off balance.
Additional Comments:
Room to grow into body and incorporate lower half into delivery increases potential.

2/16/19

2/16/19

Body Type: 6-foot-1 170-pound prospect.

Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Throws from a ¾ arm slot with a whippy arm and a crossfire action to his delivery to create some deception.

Fastball: 73-76 mph fastball was mostly true through the zone.

Breaking Ball: 61-64 mph breaking ball showed curveball shape with some depth and bite.

Changeup: 70 mph changeup was mostly true through the zone.

Pitchability: Solid feel and command for his three pitch mix.

Role: Presently would fit best as a bullpen arm. 

Body Type: 6-foot-1, 170 pounds. Taller frame with room to add.
Swing Mechanics:
Starts with a more wide stance exhibiting a quick bat with a level path in the zone leading to his contact.

Hit: Made loud barrel contact in his round showing ability to stay on pitches and drive them.
Power:
86 mph exit velocity. Big pop from this righty and showed it spraying hits more middle/oppo with his power.
Offensive Projection:
Middle bat potential with power he showed. Upside in his offensive ability.

Run: 4.7 home to first.
Field:
 Displayed average hands working the baseball. Can improve by getting extended through the ball with his glove as he approaches it. Footwork was playable. Lateral movement improving. Plenty of time for continued development.
Throw:
75 mph across the diamond.
Defensive Projection: First base. 

1/30/18

A right-handed hitter that starts in a balanced stance. Uses a knee pinch to get things started. Hands stay simple prior to accelerating the bat through the zone on a slightly downhill path. A good athlete with above average strength/bat speed for class. Would be aided by a more efficient lower half. Worked through a middle/way approach, spraying balls to the opposite field. In the infield actions are smooth and he plays under control. Showcased developing ball skills through fielding, playing from heels at times. Arm is clean and projects for more strength.  On the mound the right-hander offers a three-pitch mix through a low ¾ slot. Fastball will show regular run and sink to it at 73-75 mph. Breaking ball has a 10/4 shape with gradual action and signs of depth at 59-62 mph. Changeup has similar action to fastball but the change of speed gives it heavy dive at 68-71 mph.
