Began in a balanced athletic stance with a controlled load, then used a small leg kick. Has a loose uphill swing plane, quick bat speed and good extension on his finish. On the mound, showed a ¾ arm angle and a consistent clean arm action with quick arm speed. Tall-and-fall type pitcher and shows some effort. Sat with his fastball at 85-86 mph. Has running action. (Max spin 2533; Avg 2412). His 11/5 curveball (69-70) showed some sweeping action. (Max spin 1537; Avg 1512). He shows slight fading action on his changeup (73-74).

6/08/21

Trayce Mercer: RHP/1B, (2023) Troy, OH. 6-foot-3, 195-pound. Solid at the plate, the right-handed hitter clocked an exit velocity of 92 mph. Begins in an athletic balanced stance with a small controlled load, then uses a short stride. Bat speed was quick, and had an upward swing plane. He found multiple barrels during his rounds. Gap to gap approach. During the event, ran the 60-yard dash in 7.97. On the mound, he has a power arm look to him. Attacked hitters with the heater and complemented it with a sharp breaking ball. Velocities: curveball (74-75 mph),  fastball that came in at 82-84 mph. 


1/23/21

Trayce Mercer: RHP/1B, (2023) Troy, OH.

 6-foot-3, 200-pound solid frame. Raw in the box, Mercer had an exit velocity of 93 mph. Began in a balanced athletic stance with a controlled compact load, then used a short stride. Bat speed was above average, and displayed a flat swing plane. Created some loud contact during the round. Aggressive approach. Raw in the infield, displayed a velocity of 80 mph; has a developing exchange, raw hands, and developing feet. Laterally, movements were average and fielded the ball deep. During the event, clocked a 60 time of 8.0. Projectable on the mound, has a ¾ arm angle with quick arm speed. Feel type pitcher who uses high effort. Curveball (64-68 mph), changeup (70-72 mph), slider (69-72 mph).Threw his fastball 81-83 mph. 


10/03/20

Scouting Notes: Looks the part physically at 6-foot-3, 190-pounds. Delivery shows intent and he attacks hitters with his fastball that he ran up to 83mph.. Slider was sharp/showed flashes of swing and miss while change was an above average third offering. High follow.
Fastball: 80-83mph.
Fastball Spin Rate: 2019-2227rpm.
Breaking Ball: 69-71mph..
Breaking Ball Spin Rate: 2162-2260rpm.
Changeup: 73-74mph.

10/03/20

Hit:Aggressive stroke from the right side. Ball jumps when squared. Rotational sequence with a well above average strength/bat speed combination.
Power:Impressive pop for a 2023.
Offensive Projection:Middle ceiling.

1/21/19

Body Type: 6-foot-1 165- pound prospect with an athletic, projectable frame. Plenty of room to add strength and size to his frame.
Swing Mechanics:
Balanced stance. Shows a back load to hands during knee pinch for timing.
Hit:
Easy stroke with slight downhill tendencies. All fields approach in BP with ball flight typically resulting in low line drives to hard ground balls. Natural tools are developing with swing presently offering a bit more strength than speed.
Power:
72 mph exit velocity. Line drive guy who should grow into gap abilities.
Offensive Projection:
TBD.
Run:
8.83 60-yard dash.
Field:
Ideal frame for the first base position. Plays under control off the bag with adequate ball skills. Looks comfortable over there.
Throw:
67 mph arm strength across the diamond.
Defensive Projection:
1B.


1/21/19 Pitching

Body Type: 6-foot-1 165- pound prospect with an athletic, projectable frame. Plenty of room to add strength and size to his frame.

Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Delivery shows above average athleticism and fluidity. Throws from a low ¾ arm slot.

Fastball: 68-70 mph fastball with some natural sink that is accentuated by his low ¾ arm slot.

Breaking Ball: 55-57 breaking ball with slurvey type shape, average spin, and decent depth.

Changeup: 63-66 mph changeup with natural fade to the arm side.

Pitchability: Both the fastball and changeup showed better to command to the arm side than the glove side. Breaking ball was equally effective to both sides of the plate.

Role: Fastball and changeup command to both sides of the plate will be key in whether or not he is a starter type as opposed to being a more breaking ball dominant type guy out of the bullpen.
