Physical: High level athleticism in a durable 6-foot, 195-pound frame; strength throughout. 7.03 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: LHH. Tall, slightly open stance with the hands showing slight rhythm bouncing off of the shoulder. Utilized a controlled lift and replace stride to initiate a short and lifted flat barrel path through the hitting zone. Turned the barrel around early getting on plane and up through the baseball creating loft to the pull-side. The lower half sneaks to the first base line on occasion and clears early allowing a strong top hand to whip through contact. Lots of hand speed at the dish and stayed relatively high throughout the posture in the swing, hit into a hard and stiff front side with quick rotational power in the box. Recorded a peak bat-exit velocity of 92 mph according to Trackman Baseball / top batted ball distance of 350 feet on a bomb to RF. Quality bat to ball skills in game as well, hunts the fastball early in counts with intent to do damage. 54 % hard hit rate during his round. 

Defensively: The primary catcher featured a low setup with above average receiving abilities featuring a soft glove hand at the catch point, pop times ranged from 2.09-2.15 with very quick straight line footwork, but didn’t gain ground towards the target, smooth and repeatable transfers to the ear; threw with accuracy on the bag (sometimes on one hop) from a quick, high ¾ slot with a short arm circle. Worked hard to get the body outside the ball on blocks on either side of the plate while burying the glove hand early. C - 74 mph

Physical: Solid blend of physicality and athleticism in a 6-foot, 195-pound frame ready for the next level. 6.86 runner in the 60-yard dash.  

Offensively: LHH. Balanced, slightly open setup with the barrel resting idle on the shoulder to start. Utilized a controlled lift-and-replace stride with a shoulder turn inward and slight barrel tilt at the top of the load to initiate his swing. Showed fluidity through a slightly-open contact point with lift at extension as well as an athletic and adjustable lower half allowing for hard contact on pitches in any quadrant. Displayed high level bat to ball skills on balls on the inner half with quick rotational power and a strong top hand; worked well through extension on balls up above the belt. Could get handsy at the plate at times in game action but the power is definitely there. Hit into a stiff front side and registered a 93 mph bat-exit velocity per Trackman Baseball during batting practice.  

Defensively: The primary backstop displayed a soft glove hand at the catch point while receiving. Pop times ranged from 1.96-2.02 utilizing strength and quickness in the lower half as well as repeatability in the transfers. Accurate, above-average arm strength through a high ¾ slot. Repeatedly worked hard for his pitchers getting around the ball while blocking with recovery ability with quality footwork to any base. C - 76 mph

6/28/19

Fresh off of an impressive performance at the PBR New York State Games, Horton showcased balance in his left-handed swing while routinely staying inside the baseball. At 6-foot, 175-pound, Horton has the frame that suggests future power is likely. A solid receiver with pop times in the 2.10 - 2.20 range currently, Horton also has shown the capability to handle defensive chores at first base. Went 2-for-7 while finding his way to first base three times via a hit by pitch or walk on the weekend.
