Notes

Comments

2/13/22

Physical: Compact, strong 5-foot-7, 171lb frame with a thick lower half. 7.76 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: LHH - Balanced, slightly open start as the hands are laid flat above the shoulder to begin. Utilized an on-time leg lift stride to initiate the swing through an upright, tilted path into the hitting zone. Recorded a lofty approach to the pull-side during his round, notching an 87 mph bat-exit velocity on his best bullet. Developing bat-speed starting to push into the upper-60’s for occasional doubles power. 

Defensively: The primary outfielder featured a hop in the prep step, gathering himself with confident routes to the ball. Chopped the feet and attacked out in front with the glove-hand, displaying a 75 mph arm-strength from his position (short, quick release).

2/13/21

Physical: 5-foot-7, 160LBS. Athletic build with present strength in the lower half. 7.81 60-Yard Dash. 

Offensively: Switch Hitter. R: Shows some barrel wiggle and has a wide base. Hands are high and go slightly back during the load. Lower half is a simple up and down move. Handles the pitch up well. L: Wide base similar to the right side. Less barrel wiggle. Hands go back during the load and barrel get on plane early. Weight transfers a bit more onto the backside, producing more power onto the baseball. Hits into a firm front side

Defensively: Primary OF. Stays in the lower half well and works low to the ground in an athletic manner. Gets the hop he wants and fields ball out in front. Utilizes a distinct crow hop during the exchange. The left handed thrower has a somewhat abbreviated arm swing and will have the capability to cut down the exchange time when the time comes. 

9/26/20

Physical: 5-foot-7, 160 pounds; lean, athletic build. 7.54 runner in the 60.
Offensively: Switch Hitter. Both: Tall, wide stance; L: Small lift and replace stride, R: Similar timing mechanism with a slightly higher leg kick. Both: Average effort with L: quick hands to the zone, flat path throughout, R: similar swing finishing a bit higher with one hand.  Both: Line drive approach; peak Trackman exit velocity of R: 82, L: 84 MPH.
Defensively: Upright with a narrow base; Controlled footwork on approach. Fields the ball on the glove side of his body and transfers during a small crow hop towards the plate; Medium arm swing with a 3/4 arm slot.   OF - 72 MPH.
Pitching: Sets up in the middle of the rubber and takes a big side step before getting into a leg kick above his waist with some hip coil, strides directly out and falls off to the third base side.FB: Peak velo of 72 MPH, while sitting 70-72 MPH. Shows arm side run. CB: 60-63 MPH.Short breaking action. CH: 63-65 MPH. Arm side fade.
