6/6/16
6-foot, 185-pound athletic, projectable frame. A right-handed hitter that starts open before using a leg kick and short stride to get back to even. A lack of weight transfer causes him to take an uphill path to the ball and inconsistent contact point. Would like to see him weight shift into contact to flatten out the swing and open up all fields. Bat has strength and above average batspeed through the zone. Registered an exit velocity of 90 mph and ran a 7.24 60-yard dash. Great frame for the position. He has the skill set and characteristics to stay behind the plate. His transfer has room for improvement. However, he has great touch on the ball and accurate arm. Will generate better pop times when hands work faster and get in better position to throw.  Top velocity of 80 mph with pop times ranging between 1.86 to 1.92. Athleticism also shows well in the outfield. Reached a top velocity of 86 mph on his throws.

5-foot-11, 185-pound strong build. Right-handed hitter that starts open and gets back to even. Short, compact swing that stays flat with a high finish. Registered top exit velocity of 85 mph and ran 4.86 home to first. From the outfield he uses a good crow hop with a good exchange. Throws from a high-3/4 slot with 87 mph arm strength. From behind the plate he shows good arm strength. Has a wide base and shows good footwork. Clean transfer with pop times ranging from 2.09-2.19 with 75 mph velocity to second base.

Slightly up swing with 80 mph exit velocity and ran 7.5-60. From the outfield he tends to sit back and uses a good run thru. Throws from a long, high-3/4 slot with 75 mph arm strength. From behind the plate he starts with a wide base. Good footwork to get his feet in line with a clean transfer. Throws from a short, high-3/4 slot with pop times ranging 2.1-2.19 with 74 mph arm strength to second base.

Recorded two hits in the game with 83 mph exit velocity and ran 4.88 home to first. In the infield he does a good job fielding the ball out in front of his body. Throws from a short, high-3/4 slot with 73 mph arm strength across the diamond. Behind the plate he starts with a wide base. Tends to stand up and opens up on his transfer. Throws from short, high-3/4 with pop times ranging from 2.17-2.23 and 72 mph arm strength to second base.

1/19/15
