Power: Gap to gap pop. 92 mph exit velocity.

Offensive Projection: Multiple Roles.

Run: 7.31 60-yard dash.

Smooth leg kick timing trigger during back load to hands.

Athletic actions in the box. Swing works. Slightly downhill path with a nice combination of strength/speed to hands. Ball came off well. Feel hitter with respectable burst.
Power:
Line drive guy with flashes of gap abilities.
Offensive Projection:
Multiple Roles.
Run:
4.64 H-1st.

Feet work well in the outfield. Gets too and through the ball athletically and in a timely fashion. Solid defender out there. In the infield he plays under control with solid ball skills and very quick release.

2/17/19

2/17/19 Position

Body Type: 5-foot-11 165-pound prospect with a medium build.

Swing Mechanics: Starts in a wider setup. Uses a toe tap load with a slight armbar and cast of the barrel. Was balanced through his whole swing and showed natural lift to his swing.
Hit:
Showed good barrel control.

Power: 87 mph exit velocity.

Offensive Projection: Shows the potential to be a gap to gap guy. Would benefit from keeping his barrel in the zone long to get more power out of his swing and give himself more margin for error.
Run:
4.62 home to 1st.

Throw: 80 mph across the diamond.

Field: In the infield Janka showed some polish. Showed quick footwork and attacked the ball well. He took good angles through the ball and had a quick release and arm.

Defensive Projection: Shows a strong ability to be a 2B at the next level with enough polish and a serviceable arm that could make him a candidate to fill in at SS if needed.
