2/20/22

Physical: Lean, wiry 6-foot, 165lb frame with quick-twitch available. 6.80 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: RHH - Top of the order presence showing some bend into the backside drive leg and calm hands to start. Utilized a leg-kick on-time with a hand pump for rhythm before launching through a flat path into the hitting zone. Good contact hitter that could adjust to different zones and hit the ball where it was pitched. Recorded a much improved 90 mph bat-exit velocity with gap to gap juice starting to surface. Bat-speed coming around, too in a balanced approach. 

Defensively: The primary shortstop worked hard to get to the right side of the ball creating a good angle to the target. Clean lower half that gives him plenty of confidence to attack; notched an 85 mph arm-strength across with an accurate, moderate circle. Handled the play on the run easily from multiple slots.

2/27/21

Physical: 6’ 165lb SS/3B ran a 7.03 60 yard dash. Thin frame with room to fill out and continue to improve physical strength.

Offensively: Displayed a simple load and go swing. Not much wasted movement on his path towards the ball. Was able to get up to 86 mph off the bat and registered a 70mph bat speed.

Defensively: Showed impressive skill moving in all directions to the ball while keeping a low center of gravity throughout receiving the ball. His throwing velocity topped at 84 mph across the diamond with a quick and live arm from multiple arm slots

6/15/20

Physical: Lean and athletic 5-foot-11, 156-pound frame. Feel for his body in all movements. Recorded a 7.16 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH. Bent, even stance with not much extra going on. Hands start at the ear and move slightly back upon load utilizing a knee knock stride for the timing mechanism. The swing is short and direct to the ball, working on a flat barrel path through the point of contact towards a fluid finish. Gets tied up at times letting the ball travel too deep, but when contacting out in front generates hard barrels.  Drove the ball from gap to gap in a quality round of batting practice. Registered an 86 mph bat-exit velocity per Trackman. 

Defensively: Plays extremely low to the ground allowing for above average range to the glove hand side. Stays inside his shoulders with momentum and can control footwork on a multitude of routes, fields the ball in the middle of his body and gets the ball out fluidly on transfers, makes the play on the run with ability to throw from multiple arm angles. Long and whippy in the arm action on throws from a low ¾ slot. INF - 80 MPH. 

Pitching: RHP sat 72-77 mph out of a slow tempoed, low ¾ arm-slot with quality command on the FB showing arm-side run, mixed a 64-67 mph CB for occasional strikes which featured slow, 11/5 shape. 67-68 mph CH demonstrated fade to the arm-side when thrown out in front.

2/15/20

5-foot-11, 153-pound right-handed hitter starts from a square stance and utilizes a lift-and-replace stride to begin. Showcased a direct swing path with a line drive approach and a feel for the barrel. Registered a bat exit velocity of 85 mph and ran a 7.03 60-yard dash. Displayed active feet and a soft glove hand with a clean transition defensively with accurate 75 mph arm strength across the diamond. Also sat 77-79 while topping at 81 mph on the mound out of a high 3/4 arm slot. Showed balance and rhythm to his delivery. Curveball at 63-66 had 11/5 rotation with occasional two plane break. Changeup was thrown with good arm speed at 70-71.

7/10/18

5-foot-10, 130-pound right-handed hitter starts from a square stance and utilizes a heel-raise stride to initiate his swing. Displayed a line drive approach at the plate with a bat exit velocity of 83 mph. Showcased athletic actions defensively while routinely playing through the baseball. Current 70 mph arm strength across the diamond will improve through physical maturity and strength gains. Ran a 7.53 60-yard dash.
