Notes

Comments

10/01/22

Physical: Strong, athletic build at 6-foot-1, 180lbs. 7.23 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: LHH. Loose, slightly open stance that stays grounded with bent elbows. Utilized a stretched lift-and-replace stride to initiate the swing through a highly accurate, vertical path into the hitting zone. Clean two-handed finish, which produces hard line-drive contact around the field from gap-to-gap. Handles quality pitching with a repeatable trigger and increasing T87 mph exit velocity.

6/14/22

Physical: Athletic 6-foot-1, 180lbs with advanced feel for his body. 7.06 runner in the 60.

Offensively: LHH. Slightly open, loose stance with rhythmic hands to begin. Utilized a toe-tap stride to unleash an on-plane, flat path into the hitting zone. Maintained consistency throughout his round, able to control the turn with elite barrel skills on both sides of the plate. Notched a line-drive approach at T94 mph exit (87 mph AVG) and worked into the 348 foot distance range via Trackman. Top of the order asset.

Defensively: The outfielder displayed choppy feet and downhill chest angles at the fielding window, funneling softly off his right. Reached back for an 81 mph arm-strength positionally from H ¾ slot. Slid over to first base with ability to stick if needed; played low-to-high and could pick it.

2/19/22

Physical: 6-foot-1, 180 pounds; Athletic, wiry build. 7.43 runner in the 60.

Offensively: LHH. Open setup, with feet shoulder width apart; has a pre-pitch bat waggle. Short take back with the hands with a toe-tap for timing. Stays behind the ball while showing a strong lower half. Showed a slight lift to the ball with a one-handed finish.  More line drives than flyballs and groundballs with a peak exit velocity of 90 MPH via Trackman. All around smooth, effortless actions in the box. Swing plays up in game setting.

Defensively: Starts with an upright /tall setup; uses prep step while showing active feet. Hands are off to the side with a seamless transfer. Moderate arm circle from a high 3/4 arm slot.  OF - 72 MPH.

6/15/21

Physical: Athletic, even proportioned 6-foot-1, 180lb frame with low-pulse movements and high-level feel for the game. 7.28 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: LHH - Balanced, slightly open stance with the knees bent and hands moving in rhythm. Utilized a slight stretched move back for load, initiating on time with an early leg lift to operate through a flat path into the hitting zone. Lots of loft and hard contact through the middle of the field posting an 86% fly ball rate via Trackman working up to a 300 foot batted ball distance with razor sharp consistency. Was able to drive pitches in any quadrant for extra-bases with good bat to ball skills featuring a T84 mph bat-exit velocity during his batting practice round. Low-effort, easy connection, and more available with a swing that carries to game action. 

Defensively: The primary outfielder demonstrated good feet arriving on time to the fielding window with some downward momentum. A soft glove hand fielded loosely off the left foot, transferring/exchanging flawlessly to the ear and releasing clean from H ¾ slot to the target (79 mph arm, accurate). LF projection at the moment though the feel stands out.


2/07/21

Physical: Strong, well proportioned 6-foot, 170-pound frame with additional confidence in all phases of the game. 7.75 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: LHH - The bat most definitely comes out to play in game action with increased feel for the movements in the box; the lefty started from a narrow, open stance with the bat waving over the chest in front of his head, showed off a barrel tip at the top of the load coupled with a toe tap stride as the timing mechanism. The barrel played with heavy accuracy through a flat path yielding hard, line drive contact through the middle-pull sides of the field (46% line drive rate). An 89 mph bat-exit velocity and 310 foot peak batted ball distance were even more impressive looking at the ease in which he swung; low effort and highly efficient results evidenced with consistent 21 mph hand speed at the plate. Has a real chance to be an impact bat down the line. 

Defensively: The primary outfielder demonstrated feel for a soft glove hand working off of his left side in the approach. Got downhill with the chest angle and could get the ball out in a hurry from a high ¾ slot with a moderate takeaway. Good reads off the bat with a home in left field at the moment. Up to an accurate 78 mph arm strength from his position with room for more.


7/30/20

Physical: Strong / athletic 6-foot ,160-pound build with a well proportioned frame. High level feel in all phases of his game. 7.41 runner in the 60-yard dash. Offensively: LHH. One of the easier choices for “Offensive Standout” at the PBR Jr. Future Games. Started with a balanced, open stance with the hands showing slight rhythm while low and out over the plate. Utilized a toe tap stride coupled with a barrel bounce off the shoulder and move upwards for launch, initiated the swing through an uber efficient, slightly uphill path into the hitting zone. High level movement patterns at the plate and consistently found hard contact at the front of the plate. Just looked “hitterish” in the box and opposing pitchers found out quickly not to give him anything good to hit. Led Team PA in hitting with 5 knocks over 3 games, multiple extra base hits in both gaps. Recorded a peak bat-exit velocity of 89 mph per Trackman Baseball / maximum batted ball distance of 316 feet / 71.6 % fly ball rate. Defensively: The primary outfielder showcased athleticism in space and natural instincts on routes while getting downhill through the baseball with regularity. Used a soft glove hand to field off of the left side of his body on the approach, accurate high ¾ arm-slot out of a medium circle. OF - 76 mph … Demonstrated the ability to handle first base as well with advanced feel around the bag and a medium center of gravity while using active footwork. Showed off inside turns on double play footwork and could pick it for his infielders with control of the glove hand. 


6/29/20

Physical: 6-foot-0, 160 pounds; muscular, athletic build. 7.19 runner in the 60. Offensively: LHH. Open shoulder width stance with bat waggle; hands come into body then back, toe-tap stride. average effort, strong lower half with moderate length, quick to the ball. Hard contact to all fields; peak Trackman exit velocity of 87 MPH. Defensively: Athletic position; smooth movements, good footwork. Soft hands with clean transfer; standard 3/4 arm slot. INF - 76 MPH. OF - 74 MPH.

3/30/19

5-foot-8, 142-pound left-handed hitter starts with an open stance and utilizes and lift-and-replace stride to initiate his swing. Displayed strong rhythm and balance during batting practice with a feel for the barrel. Registered an 82 mph bat-exit velocity and recorded a 4.31 home-to-first time. Demonstrated long actions around the bag with adequate footwork guiding accurate 60 mph throws across the infield.
