6/01/21

Positional Profile: OF/RHP

Body: 6-foot-3, 190-pound strong and athletic build with high waist.

Hit: RHH.  At the plate starts with an upright posture and balanced setup with the legs.  Slow load with lower half and hands working back together quietly and early in the process.  Simple swing with heavy upper body rotation with developing back side turn in the lower half.  Level bat path with hands working short to the ball.  Line drive approach and registered above average bat speed with the Blast Sensor.

Power: 86 mph exit velocity off the tee and 86 mph exit velocity in BP.

Arm: RH. OF-83 mph.   Over the top arm slot with short arm action on the back side.  Pulls down well to achieve maximum backspin on the ball.

Defense: In the outfield attacks the ball with short and choppy steps and does a good job of working behind the ball and throwing in rhythm.  Maintains good body control throughout the fielding process.  Fields ground balls on the outside of the glove side leg with feel for glove action. 

Run: 7.24 runner in the 60.

 

Delivery: On the mound works exclusively out of the stretch.  Smooth to balance point with hands working up the chest with the knee lift.  Sinks into the backside as landing foot travels down the center of the mound.  Finishes off to the first base side of the mound with strong rotation at the plate foot.

Arm Action: High ¾ arm slot with short arm action in the back and long to extension at release.

FB: 80-81 mph, mostly straight action with high induced vertical break with an average at 19 inches.  High release point and gets good extension down the mound.

CB: 68-69 mph, 1/7 shape with early break and short action.  Good hand speed and average spin rate of 2051 RPM.

CH:  74-75 mph, has some arm side fading action with fastball hand speed.
