2/06/21

Physical: Strong / athletic 5-foot-10, 170-pound frame with increased feel in all phases of the game. 7.84 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH - Tall, loose setup out of a slightly open stance as the hands methodically waved with rhythm pre-load; utilized a deliberate high leg lift stride to initiate the hands through a fluid, slightly uphill path with present pull-side juice. Generated a 36% line drive rate with gap to gap pop using sink into an adjustable lower half. Stayed in the legs well allowing for a 90 mph peak bat-exit velocity per Trackman Baseball / 327 peak batted ball distance. Was all over the Blast Motion leaderboards with hand speed (23.1 mph), bat speed (72 mph), and rotational acceleration (26.1 G’s) which points to a big time power ceiling down the road. A bat to follow as he matures.

Defensively: Primary catcher featured advanced defensive capabilities behind the dish; above-average receiver from a traditional setup using a soft glove hand staying loose and flexed the entire time. Pop times ranged from 1.97-2.0 using beautiful straight line footwork coupled with quick transfers in and out of the glove (77 mph). A strong and accurate throwing arm should project well at the next level .. The third baseman moved low to the ground with a feel for a soft glove hand, moved well laterally to his left hand side, 81 mph arm strength across the diamond. 


7/30/20

Physical: Athletic / projectable 5-foot-9, 150-pound frame with room to continue adding strength as he matures. 7.82 runner in the 60-yard dash. Offensively: RHH. Loose, open stance with the hands showing rhythm off of the shoulder. Utilized a deliberate, high leg kick to initiate a quick and twitchy, slightly uphill barrel path into the hitting zone. Showed off quick hands towards the contact point and repeatedly caught the ball out in front of the plate. This combination coupled with long levers in the frame generated lots of leverage / loft in the swing with hard contact peppering the left side of the field from LCF gap to LF line. The juice is evident and an already solid 86 mph bat exit velocity per Trackman Baseball should continue to see itself climb as he reaches peak physical maturation. Recorded a maximum batted ball distance of 315 feet with a more than impressive 56% line drive rate during his round (one of the tops of the Jr. Future Games). Defensively: The primary catcher featured a low and compact setup in the crouch with a soft glove hand while receiving, quick straight line footwork while getting directional towards the target on pop times ranging from 2.00-2.17. Accurate, high ¾ slot on throws out of a quick, medium arm circle, advanced feel for transfers. Moved well laterally while blocking, deadening the ball out over the plate with downward chest angles. C - 76 mph Pitching: RHP - Started from the middle-right side of the mound, side rocker step into a medium-high leg lift, relatively high posture upon footstrike with average backside leg drive towards the plate. High ¾ arm-slot with a medium arm circle, FB ranged from 76-78 mph with an upwards of 2142 spin per Trackman Baseball, mixed in a developing 57-59 mph CB that had some loopiness to it. Countered with a straight 64-65 mph CH with adequate sell on the release. 


6/29/20

Physical: 5-foot-9, 140 pounds; slender, athletic. 7.75 runner in the 60. Offensively: RHH. Open narrow stance with flat bat angle; short take back with exaggerated leg kick. Aggressive lower half, stays behind and turns on the ball with compact swing path.  Hard hit flyballs to pull side; peak Trackman exit velocity of 90 MPH. Defensively: Compact; smooth receiving and blocking. quick hands, quick transfers and pop times; standard 3/4 arm slot. 2.07-2.15 pop times. C - 74 MPH. INF - 80 MPH. Pitching: Center rubber set up; methodical delivery, used quick pitch and mixed up timing. long arm action, high 3/4 slot. FB: T 78MPH, 72-74 MPH. Above average carry. CB: 60-61 MPH. CB 10-4 spin with more sweeping action than depth but big vertical separation from FB. CH: 68-69 MPH. Slower arm speed, not much movement.

2/10/20

5-foot-8, 140-pound right-handed hitter starts from a square stance and utilizes a leg hang stride to begin. Showcased balance throughout with a feel for the barrel. Registered a 78 mph bat exit velocity and pop times of 2.20-2.30 on throws of 69 mph from the crouch. Well rounded skill set will continue to develop through strength gains and physical maturity. The righty sat 72-74 on the mound from a high 3/4 arm slot while displaying a four-seam and two-seam fastball. Curveball tended to spin with 11/5 rotation at 56-61 while a slower arm speed resulted in a changeup at 56-60.
