Notes

Comments

6/08/19

Advanced size/frame for age at 6-foot, 175 pounds. Narrow, upright stance in the box. Starts slightly open to pitcher. Hovers on backside as he gets into leg lift prior to forward stride. Shows loose, easy rhythm with lands. High finish thru contact. Hits against firm front leg. Leverage in swing should translate to in-game power down the road. Defensively, stays balanced throughout while displaying control of a soft glove hand. Funnels ball in from an athletic base with feet underneath him. Arm action is clean/loose. Ball shows consistent carry out of hand. Bigger bodied defender who may end up at a corner spot due to size. 

Pitching - Uses a simple, deliberately paced delivery. Stays tall at balance with slight knee bend as he gets into short, forward stride. Low glove side after hand-break keeps his shoulders level & allows him to work downhill with the ball from ¾ release point. Stays behind the ball & consistently fills up the zone with his 3 pitch-mix. Clean arm action with short path.
