1/26/19
Body Type: 6-foot 170-pound prospect.
Swing Mechanics: At the plate Merkle shows a minimal load and drops the barrel to the ball with an uphill bat path. Remains balanced throughout.
Hit: Shows average bat to ball ability.
Power: 82 mph exit velocity.
Offensive Projection: Improving raw power will be beneficial to get the most out of his swing that lends itself to hitting balls in the air.
Run: 4.32 home to 1st.
Field: In the infield Merkle waits on the ball and doesn’t take great angles to the ball. Showed a decent glove and release.
Throw: 74 mph across the diamond.
Defensive Projection: Present skill set would project best at 2B at the next level.

Really impressed with Merkle in the infield. Actions are fluid and ball skills are above average for class. Creates angles to maintains rhythm through fielding. Solid defender. A left swinger that starts in a taller stance at the plate. Uses a knee pinch for timing while keeping hands fluid through load and into launch. Barrel flattens a bit before launch. Path is level with some whip. Line drive swinger with flashes of gap abilities.
Home to 1st: 4.49
Infield Velocity: 74
Exit Velocity 84
