Hit: Right-handed hitter that starts in a balanced stance. Uses a small leg lift with quiet hands through loading sequence. Compact stroke that travels on a downhill path. Pull side tendencies in BP but flashed the ability to spray it the other way. Physical bat with well above average rotational acceleration and bat speed.
Power: Can run the gaps with ease.
Offensive Projection: Middle.
Max BP Exit Velocity: 93 mph
Max BP Distance: 314 ft

Scouting Notes: Continues to improve his stock. 6-foot-2 power arm with electric stuff. Fastball lived 86-88 with late life through the zone and outlier type spin rates. Changeup was the best we've seen it and breaking ball was sharp per usual. He's really made a name for himself this summer.
Fastball: 85-89mph.
Fastball Spin Rate: 2189-2549
Breaking Ball: 69-72mph.
Breaking Ball Spin Rate: 2416-2454
Changeup: 81-82mph.

6/17/20 Pitching
Scouting Notes:Winter top performer that continues to look the part on the mound. 6-foot-2, athletic frame with a fast arm. Challenges hitters with the fastball that will sit in the mid 80s and complements with a very sharp breaking ball. The spinner generated consistent swing/miss. Dominated in his outing.
Fastball:85-87 mph
Fastball Spin Rate:1996-2250
Breaking Ball: 68-70 mph
Break Ball Spin Rate: 2228-2383
Changeup:70-71 mph
Changeup Spin Rate:2315-2340

2/23/20

2/23/20 Pitching
Delivery Notes: An Uncanny windup but it works. Slightly uptempo to create that rhythm towards the plate. Fastball topped at 85 but with more use of his lower half, he could gain some velocity. 
Fastball: Topping at 85 with a mid ¾ arm slot. 
Fastball Spin Rates: 2000-2200.
Curveball: Between 67-70 with an 11/5 break. With sharp break and tight spin.
Curveball Spin Rates: 2100-2300.
Changeup: 71-75 with fading action along with maintaining arm strength.

1/20/20 Pitching
Delivery Notes: Physical presence on the mound. Varies tempo to a delivery that requires some effort. Fast arm through a 3/4 slot. Throws with intent. Stuff and size will be intriguing for college coaches.
Fastball: Ball jumps out of hand. Much more velo to come.
Fastball Spin Rate:  1900-2100
Curveball: Sharp that showed signs of being an above average offering when in the zone.
Curveball Spin Rate: 2100-2300
Changeup: Pitch has late dive to it. Above average offering.

1/21/19
Body Type: 6-foot 170-pound prospect with room to add strength.
Swing Mechanics:
Balanced stance. Hands stay quiet during his leg kick timing trigger.
Hit:
Front foot swinger with a slightly downhill path through the zone. Can generate natural backspin to the middle of the field. Physical kid with above average bat speed. Showed the ability to drive the ball with authority. Much more to come as he fills out and adds loft to stroke.
Power:
82 mph exit velocity. Gap abilities.
Offensive Projection:
Run Producer.
Run:
7.57 60-yard dash.
Field:
Attacks the ball off the bat linearly. Takes direct routes to the baseball at all angles. Hands are soft and ball skills are on par for class.
Throw:
Tossed it across the infield with 80 mph arm strength. Short arm action with average strength and more to come.
Defensive Projection:
Left side of infield.

 

Body: 6-foot 170-pound prospect with room to add strength.

Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Fluid delivery with a big leg lift, looseness working out of a ¾ slot with good direction.

Fastball: 77-79 mph fastball that has some hard sink and run action.

Curveball: 61-62 mph curveball has gradual break on an 11/5 tilt. Still developing feel for the pitch.

Changeup: 69-73 mph changeup offers late fading action while maintaining arm speed. Best secondary offering.

Pitchability: Offers a solid three pitch mix. Fastball/changeup combo is above average. Shows good command of the fastball to both sides of the plate. Breaking ball needs to tighten up before it becomes anything more than a get me over pitch.

Role: Still early to tell what role this prospect would fit into at the next level. Presently offers two above average pitches. Development of the breaking ball will likely be a determining factor in role moving forward.
