2/9/20 Pitching Delivery Notes: 6-foot-1, 175-pound frame with room to fill. Arm works with a lengthy path through a ¾ arm slot. Slightly above average arm speed. Smooth delivery with repeatable actions. Fastball: Strike thrower. Fastball shows arm side movement at times. Fastball Spin Rate: 2090-2172. Curveball: Best offering. Slurvey type pitch with early action to late break with depth. Also offers a slider at the same speed that tend to move similarly. Curveball Spin Rate: 2210-2230. Changeup: Shows good fade with fastball-like armspeed. Shows solid feel. Pitchability: Slightly above average stuff. Currently projects as a bullpen-type guy with solid off-speed offerings.

6/11/19

Body type:  6-feet, 172-pound thin and athletic frame.
Swing mechanics:  Leg kick with a little bat tip.  Loose and fluid actions to contact.
Hit:  Level bat path that produces a line drive swing, and works to the middle part of the field.
Power:  Long levers that produce juice to the pull side. More to come if he adds size.
Offensive Projection:  To be determined.
Field: Looks comfortable and athletic in the outfield. Smooth actions with above averaeg ball skills. 
Throw: Loose arm with already above average strength that projects for more.
Defensive Projection: Multiple Spots out there. 

1/21/19

Body Type: 6-foot 165-pound prospect with a medium frame.
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Throws from a ¾ arm slot with average movement quality.
Fastball: 76-79 mph fastball that showed some arm side run at times.
Breaking Ball: 62-64 mph breaking ball showed tight spin and more of a slurve type of shape with decent depth and lateral break.
Changeup:  66-69 mph changeup showed some sink and arm side run at times.
Pitchability: Average 3 pitch mix. Fastball and changeup paired well with some movement and actions.
Role: Role would probably be better served as a bullpen type with his best pitch currently being his breaking ball with slurvey type shape and actions.

1/21/19

Body Type: 6-foot, 165-pound athletic frame.
Swing Mechanics: Uses a hand back load during knee pinch timing mechanism.
Hit: Balanced swing with feel for the barrel. Swing has natural lift and plays to both sides of the feel. Very solid round of BP.
Power: 88 mph exit velocity. Shows a balanced offering of strength and speed to swing. Ball jumps to both sides of the field with gap abilities. Could find himself in a run producer role if he continues to develop physically.
Offensive Projection: Multiple roles, run producer upside.
Run: 7.46 60-yard dash.
Field: Plays under control with fluid actions and above average ball skills.
Throw: 84 mph from the outfield. Big arm with physical signs of more to come.
Defensive Projection: Corner Outfield
Additional Comments: A two-way prospect with a pop in the bat and big arm from the outfield. Definite follow.

11/10/18

6-foot, athletic frame with room to add strength. Long lever type that has an easy delivery. Arm is long back prior to coming through a high-¾ slot. Fastball grades out as an above average offering. Locates the pitch well with a heavier look to it than 78-81 mph velo would suggest. More velocity to come as physical maturation takes its course. Complements the fastball with two solid secondary offerings. Breaking ball has a nice combination of action and depth on an 11/5 plane at 66-69 mph. Changeup has a fastball look to it out of the hand before showing late sink at 72-73 mph. Quality three pitch mix in general with all but certainly a velo jump in his future. Definite follow. Two-way prospect. A right-handed hitter that starts in a balanced stance. Hands show a light back load during his leg kick timing trigger. Wiry strong with bat speed. Natural loft to path allows him to lift the baseball with easy. Just like on the mound a follow for when he develops physically. In the infield he plays under control too and through. Rangy defender. Would be aided by creating angles prior to fielding to more consistently maintain momentum through fielding. In the outfield he is a corner type defender with a big arm. Outfield looks to be a viable option.

60 yard dash: 7.64
Infield Velocity: 77
Outfield Velocity: 81
Exit Velocity: 84
