7/15/20

Physical: Large and powerful 6-foot-3, 220-pound frame with advanced strength in all phases of the game. 8.32 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH. Tall, slightly open stance with a bend in the knees as the hands start just above the shoulder with the barrel idle over the backside reminiscent of Kris Bryant’s setup. Utilized a toe tap stride coupled with a barrel tip at the top of the load to unleash a violent, slightly uphill barrel path with lift at the front of the plate into the hitting zone. Showcased present weight shift into a stiff and sturdy front side, but kept the hands deep and separated allowing for well above average hip shoulder separation in the box. Demonstrated a natural pull-side approach consistently getting the barrel out in front and ambushing fastballs early in the count. Recorded a 24.4 mph peak hand speed according to Blast Motion … Generated a top batted ball distance of 403 feet per Trackman Baseball / 102 mph max bat-exit velocity both leading the entire event. Impressive physical tools with ability to be a run producer at the next level. 

Defensively: The primary first baseman featured a medium center of gravity on the approach, fielded off of the middle/left side of his body with a soft glove hand working out in front, adequate feel around the bag with ability to get back on double play feeds if need be. Accurate, high ¾ slot on throws across the diamond out of a moderate arm circle. INF - 76 mph


7/08/20

Looked comfortable around the bag at first with fluid footwork. Throws from a ¾ slot reaching a top velocity of 76 mph. Has good speed for a first baseman, recording a 7.10 60-yard dash time. Right-handed hitter starts from an open stance striding back to even at foot strike. Put together one of the best rounds of BP in the event displaying power. Showed the ability to hit the ball to both sides of the field with authority. Hands get to a good launch position, creating barrel whip through the zone, finishing with a two-handed follow through. Reached an event high exit velocity of 105 mph.

6/15/20

Physical: Strong and powerful 6-foot-3, 220-pound frame with plenty of athleticism in the movements. 7.35 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: RHH. Balanced, open stance with the hands starting high at the ear with some rhythm pre launch. Utilized a repeatable deep toe tap stride as the timing mechanism coupled with slight barrel tilt with stretch upon load. The swing is whippy with high intent violence through a slightly uphill barrel path. Was repeatedly on time at the front of the plate yielding hard contact and multiple home runs to the pull side during batting practice. Physical lower half generates above average hip / shoulder separation with ability to go backside as well. Hit into a stiff front side showcasing his hands through the hitting window allowing for an advanced 103 mph bat-exit velocity per Trackman Baseball.  

Defensively: Plays low through the baseball with feel around the bag at first base. Showcased a soft glove hand that worked through the baseball and could give if need be. Demonstrated comfortability in the double play footwork while getting back to the bag early and often. Featured an accurate throwing arm from a high ¾ arm-slot with a moderate takeaway. Should stick there moving forward at the next level. 1B - 77 mph

3/01/20

Demonstrated noticeable feel for a large 6-foot-2, 215-pound frame with present physicality and athleticism in his actions. The right-handed hitter begins with a balanced, even stance utilizing a controlled and deep knee-knock stride to launch the barrel through a slightly uphill path into the hitting zone. Showcased one of the top batting practice rounds of the day with strong wrists yielding advanced barrel whip into the hitting zone creating loud contact in front of the plate and present pull-side pop. Lower half showed violent rotation displaying advanced hip-shoulder separation allowing for an impressive 102 mph bat-exit velocity (tops on the day). Ran a 4.55 home-to-first featuring the fluidity he possesses in his frame. The primary first baseman flashed comfortability around the bag with a low center of gravity creating occasional range to both sides of the field. Used inside turns on double plays with ability to recover back to the bag for the backend of the turn. Recorded an accurate 74 mph arm-strength across the infield out of a high ¾ arm-slot. Should be an interesting power bat follow in the ‘21 class.

2/23/20

Showcased an advanced 6-foot-2, 215-pound frame with physicality in his actions and athleticism in the lower half. The right-handed hitter begins with a balanced, even stance utilizing a deep knee-knock stride to initiate a whippy barrel through a slightly uphill path into the hitting zone. Generated advanced hand speed in the zone allowing for loud and twitchy pull-side pop while hitting into a strong and stiff front side. Displayed repeatable hard contact out in front of the plate with lift to the left centerfield gap and demonstrated carry to centerfield during one of the top rounds of batting practice on the day. Recorded an impressive 97 mph bat-exit velocity and ran a 7.13 60-yard dash. The primary first baseman showed adequate feel around the bag with a moderately low center of gravity allowing for a soft glove hand to work through the ball.

1/20/19

6-foot-2, 210-pound right-handed hitter starts with a slightly open stance and has a slight leg hang as he moves forward. Showcased one of the best offensive rounds of the day with consistent pop and the top bat exit velocity of the event at 91 mph. Repeatedly drove balls to the middle of the field with backspin and carry. Ran a 4.82 home-to-first. Needs to play lower to the ground to be more athletic defensively.
