Notes

Comments

6/15/21

Physical: Physical, athletic 5-foot-11, 180lb frame with strength carried throughout the actions. 6.88 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH - Loose, balanced operation with consistent rhythm in the hands by the shoulder to start. Utilized a short leg lift stride, initiating through a slightly uphill path with efficient turns over the backside into the hitting zone. Above-average bat control and able to manipulate to different quadrants evidenced by a strong batting practice round posting a 50% line drive rate (via Trackman). Stayed stacked and connected allowing for power to the pull-side when getting extended. Obvious doubles power working up to a T93 mph bat-exit velocity (352 foot batted ball distance) and can run it out of the yard when he hits it flush. 

Defensively: The primary outfielder displayed ready defensive skills showcasing natural body movements in space and sharp, downward angles through the baseball. Got momentum towards the target upon fielding off the left side, gathering with two right-left gather steps before releasing from a powerful H ¾ slot (87 mph arm strength, accurate).

2/07/21

Physical: Strong, athletic 5-foot-11, 180-pound frame with durability present. 6.93 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH - Open, traditional setup with loose hands playing out above the shoulder; utilized a leg lift stride early in ball flight in order to get the bat head to the front of the plate through a fluid, flat attack angle into the hitting zone. Recorded an impressive 50% line drive rate to go along with a 50% hard hit yielding confidence at the plate. A 314 foot peak batted ball distance points towards doubles power at the moment and plays admirably into the desired approach from gap to gap. The power ceiling could continue rising (15+ G’s of rotational acceleration) with more to come evidenced with powerful, repeatable posture in the box. Got up to an impressive 94 mph bat-exit velocity per Trackman Baseball with a 23.70 mph top hand speed. 

Defensively: The primary outfielder flashed early reads and downhill chest positioning creating good pace from his position and confidence during defensive evaluations. A soft glove hand fielded off of the left side of the body with accuracy, funneling into the belt loop, giving way to an accurate 89 mph arm strength. Should be able to handle two of the three outfield positions at the next level.

Pitching: RHP - The righty used a traditional windup from a slight third base line facing, offset position to start. Slight hip coil at the top of the stack and a fluid arm through a high ¾ slot. FB ranged from 78-81 mph with low spin and good extension, playing heavy down in the zone. Mixed a 70 mph SL with slurve like action to it, hard bite across the plate with some depth as well.

Defensively: Athletic stance, plays low to the ground; stays behind the ball while staying low to the ground and in his legs. has a quick transfer between glove hand and throwing hand with feel of the glove hand when fielding; short arm swing, stays long through release point, showcases good arm strength from the outfield.  OF - 83 MPH. Pitching: Has great posture on the mound, has an idea of how to use his legs in his pitching delivery but is inconsistent at times, Gage can sink into back glute better and could create more power. Long arm swing and long through release point, over the top throwing motion. FB: T 78 MPH, 74-77 MPH. Downward action with low spin in the 1345-1562 range; average 4.5" of arm side run. CB: 61-63 MPH. 64-67 with straight down action between 11/5 and 12/6 movement profiles; peak induced vertical break of 13.9" from his release point.

2/22/20

Showcased an advanced 5-foot-10, 160-pound frame with present athleticism and strength in his actions. The right-handed hitter begins with a balanced, even stance utilizing a leg-hang to initiate his swing.
