2/20/22

Physical: XL 6-foot-4, 225lb frame with raw power. 7.22 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: RHH - Tall stance with high, loose hands starting in rhythm above the head. Utilized a controlled leg-lift stride to initiate the swing through a violent, slightly-uphill path into the hitting zone. Stayed behind the ball, creating healthy extension on the front-side, and generated heavy contact to pull. Recorded a T104 mph bat-exit velocity at 389 feet and projects easily to handle a middle of the order role at the next level. Crushes fastballs in game action. 

Defensively: The primary first baseman displays great body control and footwork around the bag for his size. Light on the toes and gets in an athletic position to field. Soft glove-hand, accurate arm strength up to 82 mph from a H ¾ slot, followed the throw.

8/10/21

Physical: Violent, XL 6-foot-4, 225lb frame with a strong build. Toledo commit, 7.25 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: RHH - Physical setup at an upright position as the hands started high. Utilized a leg-hang stride with hip-coil, exploding at footstrike through a high-intent, slightly uphill path into the hitting zone. Stayed over the rear hip with impact bat-speeds and easy juice to the pull-side of the field, hitting with leverage primarily. Recorded one of the louder rounds of batting practice that we’ve seen over the course of the year, hitting 6 home runs with undivided attention from the crowd. Notched a T103 mph bat-exit velocity with tight, efficient turns, using the ground properly to transfer energy into a stiff front-side. Clean middle of the order skillset with natural extension (395 foot peak via Trackman). 

Defensively: The primary first baseman operated with choppy feet from a wider, medium base at the fielding window. A soft glove hand could give accurately into the beltline, transferring as the hips/shoulders got on target for the release at H ¾ slot (79 mph arm, feel around the bag).


6/13/21

Physical: Powerful, strong 6-foot-4, 225lb middle of the order build with raw athleticism. 7.26 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH - Wide, balanced stance with the hands starting high and barrel downward on the shoulder; utilized a barrel wiggle at the top of the load coupled with a leg-lift to generate impressive ground power in the swing. The hands launch through an explosive, flat path yielding lift after impact and an easy pull-side approach during batting practice. Notched multiple home-runs over the big wall in LF showing ready power from the right side of the plate. Big rotational acceleration scores and connection allowing for actions to translate into game action. Recorded a near 400 foot batted ball distance and a 103 mph bat-exit velocity leading to LOUD contact. 

Defensively: The primary first baseman bounces around the bag with feel and a soft glove hand from a medium/low posture. Worked down to up and showed off a clean exchange leading to natural pace across the diamond; accurate high ¾ slot on the release (78 mph arm).


2/06/21

Physical: Big time physicality in a strong 6-foot-4, 225-pound frame that oozes athleticism as well. 7.47 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH - Coming off of one of the better rounds we’ve seen this year at Pittsburgh Outlaws Scout Day, Parker stayed hot with a scorching 101 mph bat-exit velocity and easy loft to all fields (60% fly ball rate). The righty started from a bent, slightly open stance with the barrel waving slowly on the shoulder while utilizing a deliberate toe tap stride to get into the legs. The hands whipped the barrel through a slightly uphill path with thunderous intent at the front of the plate; generated a 397 foot peak batted ball distance during his round of batting practice. Multiple Blast Motion measurables were eye popping: an 81 mph bat speed and a 29.40 mph hand speed. Definite ability to handle a middle of the order role at the next level and can run it out of the yard with the best of them. 

Defensively: Primary first baseman moved extremely well at the corner spot working with precision and feel around the bag. Featured an athletic setup with a moderately low center of gravity while playing over the toes with the momentum. Easy rhythm and sets the body up for a good position to throw out of, high ¾ slot and accurate 76 mph arm strength across the diamond.


6/15/20

Physical: Large, physical in a 6-foot-3, 225-pound frame with strength and noticeable power in the movements. 7.81 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: RHH. Wide, even stance with the hands at the shoulder. Utilized a toe-tap stride with minimal hand movement on the load allowing for high bat to ball skills during a loud batting practice round. Barrel worked slightly uphill creating natural lift to the pull-side gap when contacting the ball out in front of the plate. The lower half created easy hip / shoulder separation while hitting into a stiff front side with some weight shift present. Registered an advanced 96 mph bat-exit velocity per Trackman Baseball. 

Defensively: The first baseman displayed adequate feel around the bag with active feet arriving on time to the baseball with regularity. A soft glove hand played through the ball out in front and demonstrated repeatability on the transfers. Arm action worked accurately through a high ¾ arm-slot with a long takeaway and long in the front. 1B - 80 mph 

Pitching: RHP - Showed an imposing presence on the mound with a repeatable, controlled delivery and quick arm on the front side through a high ¾ arm-slot. Got quality extension on a 76-79 mph FB that played harder and heavier into the zone. Mixed in a 69-71 mph CB with short and late 11/5 shape for the out pitch. 

2/23/20

Showcased a physically advanced 6-foot-3, 225-pound frame with present strength in his actions. The right-handed hitter begins with a wide, even stance utilizing a slight knee-knock stride to initiate his swing. Generated quick hand speed through a slightly uphill barrel path with occasional arm-bar in the swing. Hit into a stiff front side allowing for present pull-side lift during a quality batting practice round and recorded a loud 92 mph bat-exit velocity. Ran a 7.84 60-yard dash. The primary first baseman demonstrated adequate feel around the bag with a low center of gravity and soft glove hand allowing for smooth transfers. Utilized inside turns on double play footwork allowing for quick transitions with recovery ability getting back to the bag. Recorded an 82 mph arm-strength across the diamond out of a high ¾ arm-slot. The right-handed pitcher worked from the stretch only sitting 80-83 mph out of a slow-tempo, high ¾ arm-slot with small hip-coil. Mixed in a 68-69 mph curveball featuring slider action across the zone.
