2/20/22

Physical: Well put together, athletic 5-foot-10, 180lb frame. 7.10 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: RHH - Narrow, upright stance with rhythm pre-pitch in the hands; high start position. Utilized a stretched load out towards the pitcher on the step, initiating the swing through a flat path towards a high two-handed finish. Recorded an 89 mph bat-exit velocity (wood) staying on the barrel mostly for a 57% sweet spot rate. Gap to gap power and room to continue adding strength as he matures, good rotational hitter. 

Defensively: The backstop alternated between traditional and left knee down in the crouch with feel for the pocket on the receive. Pop times ranged 2.07-2.13 while letting the ball travel and got over the front-side on the release (H ¾ slot). Low, powerful posture and 76 mph arm-strength behind the dish. Slid over to third base, showing similar body control and clean reads off the bat. Played through the ball towards the target and notched a 78 mph throwing arm.

Physical: Large, powerful 5-foot-10, 180-pound frame with athleticism throughout the actions. 7.28 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: Switch hitter - Mirrored from both sides of the plate, balanced and slightly narrow setup utilizing a barrel tip at the top of the load coupled with a short lift and replace stride. Showed off weight shift at times through the front side at impact allowing for rhythm and consistency at the plate. Generated an impressive 41% line drive rate during batting practice flashing the ability to hit for AVG down the line. A 77% on-plane efficiency points to high bat to ball skills offensively and an above-average rotational acceleration score (21.2 G’s) hints at a quality power ceiling down the line. Middle of the field, low-effort approach yielding bat-exit velocities as high as 91 mph and a peak batted ball distance of 325 feet per Trackman Baseball.

Defensively: The primary backstop was an advanced receiver with zero glove movement at the catch point; plus pocket awareness. Pop times ranged from 1.97-1.99 with minor pre-catch momentum out of the crouch; great feel for the transfer in/out of the glove and on its way to second out of a short and quick, high ¾ slot. Good blocker as well beating the ball to the spot with solid hip mobility. The defensive abilities definitely play at a high level (75 mph arm strength) which transferred over to an impressive round at third base; stayed low to the ground with intent to gain ground, good backside leg drive, and an absolute hose across the diamond (88 mph).
