10/27/19

A proportional and athletic 6-foot, 170-pound frame. On the mound, the right-hander works from an average tempo delivery with rhythm and a high leg kick before exploding down the mound with a quick stride, finishing towards the dish. Arm action is quick with moderate length in the back, showing a quick change of direction at the bottom of the arm stroke before coming through a near over the top slot with advanced arm speed.

Curveball shows 12/6 shape with some late depth and tight spin at 70-71 mph thrown with near fastball arm speed.  In the game Birchfield retired three of the four batters he faced, not allowing a hit. 

10/27/19

Showcased comfortability in an athletic 6-foot, 170-pound lean frame with present twitch. The left-handed hitter starts with an open stance utilizing a leg-kick to initiate his swing. Quick hands whip through a slightly uphill barrel path in the zone creating backspin to the pull-side. A strong lower-half allowed for advanced barrel awareness during batting practice, registering an 85 mph bat-exit velocity from the tee. Recorded a 7.25 60-yard dash. The primary shortstop demonstrated fluidity in footwork and timing during defensive evaluations, showing off advanced control of his body. Consistently arrived to the baseball on time and played low through the baseball generating strong, accurate throws of 89 mph across the infield with carry out of a high ¾ arm-slot. 

7/16/19

A lean and athletic 6-foot, 160-pound frame with some strength. On the mound, the right-hander works from an average tempo and repeatable delivery with excellent rhythm and high leg kick, coiling at the top before striding down the mound and finishing balanced. Arm action is clean and fluid in the back before coming through a high-¾ slot with arm speed. Fastball keeps its plane at 84-86 mph, nearly all strikes with some late lift. Curveball shows consistent 11/5 shape with late depth and tight spin at 69-71mph. Changeup shows excellent fade and is throw with advanced feel at 74-75 mph. 

7/16/19

Rising junior left-handed hitter who ran a 7.14 60-yard dash. Starts from an upright, open stance and incorporates a toe-tap into a square base. Rests bat on shoulder, raises it with a waggle and wraps barrel behind his head to launch. Stays under control, repeats swing and used the whole field during his BP round. Keeps barrel in the zone and hits through contact well. Additional strength in his 6-foot, 160-pound frame will help him grow into gap power (registered 80-mph exit velo on this day). Defensively, he gains ground with a solid approach to the ball. Can play high at times, causing him to work down to the ball instead of behind it. Posted 85-mph arm strength across the diamond.
