New York Games (June 27-29, 2016)
The versatile two way guy stands 5-foot-9, 145-pounds with a slender frame that will easily take on some more weight with time. He ran a 6.91 60-yard dash. Offensively- At the plate he sets up tall and relaxed uses, a small consistent stride and steps away from his hands. Bat path has slight incline and uses a one hand release finish. Exit velocity was 80 MPH. Defensively- Shows good clean actions and footwork up the middle, arm strength more then suitable at 81 MPH across the diamond. Pitching- On the mound he has a quick hand which in time should continue to see velocity gains as he gets bigger and stronger. Breaking ball was tight and well located. FB sat 75-79 MPH with CB at 61-63 MPH.

Preseason All-State (February 28, 2016)
Through now three events, we have seen steady improvements from the lean (5-foot-9, 145-pound) Underhill, who shows next-level projectable ability. Offensively - he uses a slightly open stance, hands high with a slight barrel lean back. On the pitch he uses a smooth load, stride, hands stay inside the ball, mostly level barrel plane with extension out in front after contact. Bat-speed is improving from 72 to now 80 mph. Defensively - smooth defender, fields out in front bending properly from his back not his knees, the transition is clean, shorter arm-action from an accurate strong (81 mph) high-3/4 slot. Pitching - shows a quick loose arm from an undersized body, with more size and strength, Underhill projects well from the mound. Smooth pace to his delivery, high knee-lift, shorter arm-action with good hip/shoulder separation towards home. Throws from a high-3/4 slot with some downward tilt to his 79-81 mph fastball. Changeup sits 74-75 with some late depth, likely should take a few ticks off the mph for more effectiveness. Curveball has the proper spin, good 11/6 shape, at times more gradual than sharp. 68-70 mph with good feel, chance to be a next-level pitch.

WNY All-Star Games (August, 27, 2015)
Stands at 5-foot-8, 140 pounds, with a lean athletic body build.  He ran a 4.56 Home to 1st from the right-hand side. Defensively- He has a smooth approach through the ball, with smooth, soft hands, throws with an over the top arm action, plays through the ball nicely, displays some of range, and has accuracy on the target across the diamond.  His arm strength was 77 MPHPitching- On the mound, during the game he seems very composed and comfortable.  He uses a simple side step, balanced delivery, arm action is fairly clean and loose, throws with an over the top arm slot.  His fast ball was (77-78 MPH).  Curveball had a 12 to 6 downward action and changeup had a little late downward action.  In the game, he got hitters to hit groundballs.Offensively-  At the plate his setup is relaxed and balanced stance, short double tap stride, with a back load.  His hands are very compact and strong, swinging with a little uphill tilt but straight to the ball, and has shoulder high finish with good extension through the ball.   His exit velocity was 74 MPH.

Western New York Open (July 23, 2015)
Stands at 5-foot-8, 140 pounds, with a lean athletic body build.  He ran a 4.76 Home to 1st from the right-hand side.  Defensively- He has a smooth approach through the ball, with smooth, soft hands, throws with an over the top arm action, plays through the ball nicely, with some of range, and has accuracy on the target.  His arm strength was 78 MPH. Pitching- On the mound, he uses a simple side step, balanced delivery, arm action is fairly clean and loose, throws with an over the top arm slot.  He needs to really drive from balanced position and finish over his front side more consistently.  His fast ball was (77-78 MPH).  Curveball had a 12 to 6 downward action and changeup had a little late downward action.  Offensively- At the plate his setup is relaxed and balanced stance, short double tap stride, with a back load.  His hands are very compact and strong, swinging with a little uphill tilt but straight to the ball, and has shoulder high finish with good extension through the ball.   His exit velocity was 68 MPH
