6/13/17 6-foot, 210-pound left-handed hitter was one of the top offensive performers of the event.  Displayed a 99 mph bat exit velocity and 4-for-6 with three doubles, a triple and a walk in game action.  Showed above average plate discipline and the ability to drive balls to both gaps.  Starts from a slightly open stance and initiates his swing with a controlled leg-lift stride.  Very quick hands and an aggressive hip turn lead to advanced barrel whip.  Runs well for his size registering a 4.59 on a turn while running a 7.20 60-yard dash.  Above average abilities defensively around the bag with a very soft glove hand and solid footwork.  Two-way prospect sat 80-82 with sink from a 3/4 arm slot while keeping hitters off balance with a 70 mph curveball and a 72 mph slider.

4/3/17 FB sat 78-81 and exhibited consistent action, either run or sink, rarely flattening out. Mixed in a very solid 1/7 CB at 68-71 that he was able to throw to both sides of the plate for strikes. Left-handed hitter with simple approach also picked up one of his team's two hits on the day, a double to left-center on a pitch away that he stayed inside and through.

2/12/17 6-foot, 205-pound two-way prospect put together a solid across the board showing. The left-handed hitter continued to impress with quick hands and an above average feel for the barrel. He starts from a slightly open stance and initiates his swing with a controlled leg-lift stride. Solid balance throughout swing with ability to drive both gaps. Registered a 91 mph bat exit velocity and showed the ability to impart backspin. Ran a 7.35 60-yard dash and showcased a soft glove hand, active feet and a quick release defensively with accurate 79 mph arm strength across the diamond.

2/12/17 Primary position player pounded the zone with four pitches delivering from a high 3/4 slot after pausing in a loaded separation. Sat 79-81 with his fastball, up five mph from just six months ago. His curveball with 1/7 rotation and sweeping slider were both thrown 69-70 with tight spin, and his changeup had some late fading action at 72-73.

1/14/17 5-foot-11, 200-pound left-handed hitter took one of the top rounds of batting practice on the day, displaying an ability to stay inside the baseball with advanced barrel whip (89 mph bat exit velocity). Starts from an open stance and utilizes a short leg-lift stride to initiate his swing. Hands work well through contact and the ball jumps off his barrel. The two-way prospect also showcased a soft glove hand and athletic feet around the bag at first base while commanding a four-pitch mix off the mound.

10/29/16 5-foot-11, 210-pound left-handed hitter posted a similar performance to last seen six weeks ago, while logging better across the board measureables. Starts from an open stance and strides to slightly open, holding the bat in a good launch position. Pull-oriented, slightly uphill path. Recorded a 91 mph exit velocity and ran a 7.38 60-yard dash. He is solid across the board defensive skill set with 71 mph arm strength.

9/25/16 5-foot-11, 200-pound left-handed hitter. Starts from an open stance and strides to slightly open. Repeated a pull-oriented swing during a solid round of BP and recorded an 86 mph exit velocity. Kept head and eyes relatively still throughout. Defensively, he showcased a soft glovehand and an accurate 70 mph arm with quick, one-shuffle release on double play feeds. Also looked very comfortable picking throws out of the dirt during game action.
Compact delivery and stays on-line well to the plate. Timing disruptions for the hitter include a start-and-stop takeaway and slight bounce out of his balance point. Out of a high three-quarter slot, he threw strikes with a fastball that sat 73-76 and two distinct breaking balls. Very good feel for a slow 1/7 curveball at 63-64 that he was routinely able to backdoor against right-handed hitters, while he also featured a tighter slider with more horizontal action at 66-67.
