2/20/22

Physical: Compact 6-foot-1, 185lb frame with even proportions. 7.20 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: RHH - Slightly open stance as the hands position themselves by the ear to start. Utilized a stretched lift and replace stride to initiate the swing through a flat, whippy path towards a one-handed finish on the backside. Recorded a 95 mph bat-exit velocity with gap to gap power and showed consistency by posting a 71% sweet spot rate. Barrel-finder that could adjust to different quadrants of the plate and maintained direction, 354 foot max distance. 

Defensively: The backstop is an advanced defender presenting a low target and staying down through the hips as he sets the feet to throw. Traditional setup in the crouch and can alternate to knee-down if needed. Pop times ranged from 1.97-2.00 with a fast exchange and quick H ¾ slot on the release (79 mph). Then slid over to shortstop using choppy footwork and a glove-tap to get rid of the ball in rhythm. Followed the throw to the bag and notched an 85 mph best across the diamond.

6/15/21

Physical: The recent West Virginia commit stands a projectable, athletic 6-foot, 175lb frame with strong movements. 7.09 runner in the 60-yard dash.  

Offensively: RHH - Balanced, even stance with loose hand operation hanging out by the ear. Utilized an easy leg lift stride towards the pitcher, connecting and initiating through a flat path into the hitting zone. Got leveraged and created loud contact at the front of the plate allowing for a pull-side approach during batting practice and repeated PWR positions in the actions. Worked his way up to a T90 mph bat-exit velocity via Trackman Baseball, adding a 70% fly ball rate (loft) as well as a 330+ foot batted ball distance.

Defensively: The primary backstop was one of the top defensive catchers in attendance; quiet left knee down setup with an early target and soft/subtle hand movements at the catch point. Pop times ranged from 1.88-1.94 with an immediate trigger and useful pre-catch rhythm, getting lightning quick feet into the ground and replaced on time at a fluid ¾ release (73 mph arm, accurate). Natural blocking skills burying the ball softly out over the plate for recovery ability.


2/27/21

Physical: 6’ 175 lb C/SS ran a 7.50 laser timed 60 yard dash. Strong athletic frame displays strength in his movements.

Offensively: Lower half and hands load at the same time, working backwards before creating a forward movement towards the pitcher. Barrel works quickly inside the ball and through the ball.

Defensively: Active behind the plate showing ability to move with the pitch and maintain rhythm for catch and throw. Hands work together nicely. Arm has room to continue to strengthen.


10/19/19

5-foot-10, 145-pound right-handed hitter starts from a slightly open stance and utilizes a lift-and-replace stride to begin. Displayed a direct swing path with loose hands and a line drive approach. Registered a bat exit velocity of 74 mph and ran a 7.50 60-yard dash. Advanced receiver showcased pop times of 2.14-2.20 on throws of 71 mph with quick feet and a clean transition.
