6/11/19

The 6-foot, 180-pound primary backstop featured an athletic frame with present strength. The right-handed hitter starts with a wide, slightly open stance with weight rocking slowly from frontside to backside. Utilized a controlled leg hang with hands that generated a slightly uphill barrel path to the baseball. Fluid, easy swing with barrel whip was repeated often and a strong lower half allowed for some present power. Demonstrated advanced barrel awareness registering bat-exit velocities of 85 mph. Ran a 7.27 60-yard dash. The primary catcher is an advanced receiver with a soft glove hand. Pop times ranged from 2.02-2.16 with an accurate 76 mph arm-strength from the crouch. Solid hip drive towards the target coupled with adequate transfers allowed for a moderate takeaway to come through a high ¾ arm-slot. Displayed feel for blocking on both sides of the plate evidenced by soft walls created during defensive evaluations.

5/18/19

A physically developed 6-foot, 180-pound muscular frame with strength. On the mound, the right-hander works from a simple and average tempo delivery that he repeats well before striding slightly across his body and finishing balanced. Arm action is clean and fluid in the back with moderate length, coming through a high-¾ slot with arm strength. Fastball was down from where we had seen it before (83-86), ranging 80-83 mph, commanded in the zone. Curveball shows rolling action with 11/5 shape at 60-63 mph, mostly strikes. Slider flashes short 10/4 shape at 68-72 mph.

Consistent barrels in BP with pull side lift and pop, has plus bat speed with ability to add more. Uses simple leg lift to stride and swing, lower half stays connected, strong at contact and extension. Middle of the order bat at the next level. In BP shows a gap to gap approach with occasional lift, 88 mph exit velo. Runs a 7.02 60. Defensively, receives baseball in athletic stance, catches baseball out front with good presentation. On throws down, aggressive and athletic to throw with minimal wasted movement, longer arm stroke with arm strength, ball jumps out of the hand.
