8/10/21

Physical: Long, super athletic 6-foot-3, 190lb frame with some two-way feel. Did not run on this date. 

Offensively: RHH - Slightly bent, upright stance as the hands began slotted higher by the ear. Utilized a leg-lift stride to initiate the barrel through an uphill path into the hitting zone. Liked to create leverage at impact, racing the hands to the front of the plate, but maintained short/direct actions in the box. Handled the inner half with accuracy, producing a pull-side approach during his round. Posted a T94 mph bat-exit velocity with an even spread of line drives and fly balls en route to a 335 foot max batted ball distance (via Trackman). 

Defensively: The outfielder has flashed centerfielder qualities in the past with a bursty first step and lengthy strides that cover ground. Good reads off the bat, able to operate with some controlled pace over the toes. Fielded cleanly and funneled to the chest, releasing up to 79 mph from a moderate H ¾ slot (more available).


6/13/21

Physical: Long, projectable 6-foot-3, 197lb frame with impact athleticism in all phases. 6.81 runner in the 60-yard dash with big strides at top speed. 

Offensively: RHH - The righty stands in a balanced, upright position to start using slight bend in the knees and early, loose hands at the shoulder. Utilized a barrel tip coupled with a medium leg lift stride to initiate the bat head through a flat, slightly vertical path into the hitting zone. Really handled pitches out over the plate with authority, getting extended and leveraged at the point of contact. Stayed inside a powerful lower half that matched pitch plane in all quadrants, recording a 94 mph bat-exit velocity via Trackman Baseball (54% line drive rate). Mature approach hitting the ball where it's pitched from gap to gap.

Defensively: The primary outfielder flashed center fielder qualities, getting an immediate read off the bat with quick hip-swivel in either direction. Could drop step and go get it or keep momentum downhill through the target with a soft, trusted glove hand. Fielded out in front with attacking play, giving way to a controlled, consistent exchange before releasing at a loose, high ¾ slot (81 mph arm).


2/13/21

Physical: 6-foot-3, 191LBS. Lean, athletic build. 6.91SEC 60-yard dash.

Offensively: RHH. Tall, narrow set up in the box. Pre set torque between the lower and upper half with the rear foot angled in. Early, gradual load. Hands begin next to ear and move slightly back. Utilizes a leg hang for timing. Swing is somewhat steep due to hand placement. Drives ball out in front. High finish. Average exit velo of 86MPH, MAX of 92MPH.

Defensively: Showed athleticism in the OF with active, clean footwork. Quick shuffle during the exchange, in which he closes himself off from the target. Good carry on throws. 81MPH throwing velo from the OF. 

Pitching: Begins in the center of the rubber and is squared towards home plate. Windup begins with a rocker step, works into a leg lift, while the glove goes up and down in correlation with the leg. Arm works without restrictions and releases from a high 3/4 arm slot. FB ran up to 81MPH. With the physicality in the frame you have to believe there is more in the tank as movements are refined.

6/15/20

Physical: Lean and athletic 6-foot-2, 185-pound frame with length in the limbs and well proportioned strength. 6.97 runner in the 60-yard dash.  

Offensively: RHH. Crouched, even stance with hands starting low at the shoulder, hands move back and slightly up coupled with a short lift-and-replace stride for timing mechanism. Stays low to the ground in the box breeding adjustability in the lower half. The swing is lengthy at times through the hitting zone and works slightly uphill through contact allowing for natural lift to the pull side. Generated hard line drives to CF and the LCF gap during batting practice allowing for an 85 mph bat-exit velocity per Trackman. 

Defensively: Plays with long actions in the field showcasing massive strides covering both sides laterally. Moderately low on the approach, fields the ball on the side of his body and gets the ball out semi-fluidly on transfers. Gets quality reads on the ball from the moment they are hit, longer and fluid on the arm swing out of a high 3/4 arm slot. OF - 76 MPH. 

Pitching: RHP utilized a methodical, compact delivery out of a high ¾ arm-slot sitting 71-76 mph missing high on the FB above the zone, and mixed a 58-65 mph CB for occasional strikes which saw short, 11/5 shape.


2/29/20

Showcased a physical and athletic 6-foot-2, 185-pound frame with some fluidity in his actions and present feel for his body. The right-handed hitter begins with a wide, even stance utilizing a controlled lift-and-replace stride to initiate a slightly uphill barrel path into the hitting zone. Demonstrated athleticism in the lower half allowing for easy hip-shoulder separation allowing for some whip in the hands towards contact yielding a gap to gap approach during batting practice. Recorded a solid 87 mph bat-exit velocity and ran a 6.97 60-yard dash showing off the fluidity in his movements. The primary outfielder displayed adequate footwork beating the ball to the spot and playing through it with regularity. A low center of gravity and quick first step created range to both sides and downhill momentum towards the target yielded accurate 75 mph arm-strength from his position. The right-handed pitcher sat 73-75 mph out of a high ¾ arm-slot with command on the fastball. Mixed in a 61-63 mph curveball featuring 11/5 shape and countered with a 60-62 mph changeup thrown with adequate sell.
