2/27/21

Physical: 5’9 155lb OF/RHP ran a 7.39 laser timed 60-yard dash. The undersized frame has solid fundamentals and room for continued development.

Offensively: Starts in a narrow stance as his hands pump in rhythm before working down through the baseball. Maintains good body control throughout the entire swing allowing for consistency.

Defensively: Approaches the ball with a good pace and uses athleticism to allow momentum to flow through the catch. Maximizes his power by crow hopping and throwing with extreme intent.

Pitching. Stay slow and smooth through the windup and then really kicks it into gear as he strides and begins his forward movement. Arm works short and quick.


6/15/20

Physical: Lean and athletic, 5-foot-9, 145-pound frame with some feel for his body. 7.57 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: RHH. Bent, open stance with comfortability in the setup, hands start at the ear and move slightly back along with a short lift-and-replace stride as the timing mechanism. The swing is short and quick into the hitting zone, working on a flat barrel path through the point of contact towards the finish. Peppered line drives through the middle of the field while hitting into a stiff front side during batting practice with a feel for the hands. Recorded an 82 mph bat-exit velocity per Trackman. 

Defensively: Demonstrated a low center of gravity with a quick first step and active feet that worked to the baseball and through it, fields the ball on the side of his body with above-average feel in the outfield. Moderate on the takeaway and short out in front on accurate throws out of a workable, high 3/4 arm slot. OF - 77 MPH. 

Pitching: RHP utilized a quick, compact rhythm on the bump showing off repeatability on all pitches.  The righty sat 76-79 mph on the FB out of a short, high ¾ arm-slot, worked a 66-68 mph CB with short, late break across an 11/5 window, countered with a 70-71 mph CH at near fastball arm-speed allowing for deception.

3/02/19

5-foot-7, 125-pound right-handed hitter starts with a slightly-open stance and utilizes a leg-lift to initiate his swing. Showcased a short, quick swing that led to consistent 73 mph barrels to both gaps. Displayed advanced actions in the outfield during defensive evaluations while registering an impressive 79 mph arm-strength from his position. Ran a 7.87 60-yard dash. Right-handed pitcher sat 73-75 mph out of a repeatable, high 3/4 delivery. His two-plane, 11/5 curveball flashed swing and miss ability at 63-65 mph.
