Maryland Top Prospect Games West

Body: 5’10”, 175 pounds. Strong, athletic frame with tangible proportions throughout. 
Hit: RHH. Balanced, even stance at an upright position with quick rhythm in the hands at shoulder height. Utilized a short lift and replace stride and stretched load to initiate the bat head through a flat path into the hitting zone. High finish allowing for occasional lift and backspin to the pull side gap while hitting into a stiff front side. Generated a noticeable 25.7 G’s of rotational acceleration, flashing early connection and usable power at the plate. 
Power: 89 mph exit velocity during BP per TrackMan. Power is going to come in waves, already doing damage to pull-side on pitches out over the plate. 
Arm: RH. INF - 73 mph. Low ¾ to ¾ slot on the release with a slight bend in the elbow, accurate on the bag and can manipulate arm angles on the run. 
Defense: Hop in the prep step getting to a wide base and reacting with a quick first step on the toes. Above-average defensive qualities as the ball worked in/out of the glove with consistency. Range showed traveling easily to his glove hand side and finishing plays on the run. 
Run: 7.60 60-yard time.

Delivery: Deep side rocker into a quick paced delivery, medium leg lift and races into foot strike at stride length. Held balance through the finish and controlled head movement allowing for some repeatability in the release. 
Arm Action: RH. High ¾ with quickness on the front side. 
FB: T76 mph, 73-76 mph. Average spin rate of 1619 rpm per TrackMan. Threw for strikes, and could work both sides if needed with increased confidence. 
CB: 64-65 mph. Average spin rate of 1842 rpm per TrackMan. Short, horizontal movement at the last second with consistent release points allowing for it to be the go to secondary offering. 
CH: 67-70 mph. Killed spin with developing feel for the strike zone, has the chance to be a quality third pitch down the road.

Pitching: RHP. Starts on the 1B side of the rubber. Uses a rocker step and a leg lift to chest. The hands start at the belt line and work up in correlation with the leg lift. Drops into the rear leg as he gets down the mound. On glove break the throwing arm stabs down prior to working forward.
