8/10/21

Physical: Lengthy, projectable 6-foot-2, 220lb frame with leverage/strength. Did not run on this date.

Offensively: RHH - The hands started pre-set at a higher position as he worked from a bent, balanced base. Utilized a toe-tap stride with sink into the backside leg, initiating through a slightly uphill, lifted path into the hitting zone. Liked to get extended out over the plate, doing big damage to the pull-side of the field when hitting out in front. Phased properly into a stiff lead leg, increasing bat-speed through impact (50% fly ball rate, 362 foot batted ball via Trackman). Obvious middle of the order skillset that put two balls over the concourse and out of the stadium in LF during his BP round. Blended similar BP swings over to game action with ability to work short to extended at the plate. Recorded a T101 mph bat-exit velocity at his peak. 

Defensively: The primary first baseman demonstrated a medium posture at the fielding window while bending at the waist. Fielded cleanly off the middle of his body with soft glove hand actions and got hips/shoulders in-line before release (77 mph arm). Natural feel around the bag and could pick it some, too.


2/27/21

Physical: 6’2 202 lb 1B/OF ran a 7.02 laser timed 60-yard dash. Mature frame, solid physical size, and has ability to move efficiently to allow his actions to look clean and effortless.

Offensively: Starts in a pre-loaded position to where he only has a small load of the hands and body before firing to the pitch. Finishes his swing in a slightly leaned back position with a stiff front leg. Creates good upper and lower body separation throughout swing.

Defensively: Lose movements when approaching the ball. Catches clean and starts to create momentum in the direction of his target. Keeps it simple on defense.


8/18/20

Physical: 6-foot-2, 193 pounds; strong, physical frame. 7.57 runner in the 60.  
Offensively: RHH. Upright open stance with 45 degree bat angle; hands load straight back late with a short even stride. Strong lower half, stays behind the ball well with swing stays in the zone with high bat speed & quick hands. Pull side approach with power; peak Trackman exit velocity of 95 MPH.
Defensively: Upright stance; laid back approach, fields out front, smooth through transitions. Seamless transfer; long arm swing, standard 3/4 arm slot. INF - 73 MPH.

7/15/20

Physical: Uber physical 6-foot-2, 193-pound frame with athleticism sprinkled throughout the movements. 7.44 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH. Started with a balanced, slightly open setup with minor bend in the knees, the hands begin above the shoulder with some rhythm in the setup. Utilized a lift-and-replace stride to initiate a slightly uphill barrel path with violence through impact into the hitting zone. Created plenty of hard contact and loud noises at the front of the plate with high level hip shoulder separation in the box coupled with above average feel for extension on the swing. Recorded a maximum bat-exit velocity of 97 mph according to Trackman Baseball while peppering the LCF wall with repeated deep fly balls, generated a 33% fly ball rate / 33 % line drive rate during his BP round with a peak batted ball distance of 370 feet for a home run. 

Defensively: The primary first baseman featured a medium-low center of gravity and solid feel around the bag. Approached the ball off of the left side of his body with a soft glove hand and adequate catch and throw skills across the diamond. Could get back to the back on double play feeds if need be. INF - 76 mph
