Notes

Comments

6/14/22

Physical: Muscular, athletic 6-foot, 195lb frame. 6.94 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: RHH. Upright, even stance with a high back-elbowed start to begin. Utilized a simple lift and replace stride to initiate a short-to-long barrel path into the hitting zone. Produced plenty of extra-base hit contact at the front of the plate, finding extension up to a T90 mph exit velocity via Trackman. Added a 63% line-drive rate with some ability to hit for AVG down the road, matching plane out of the hand.

Defensively: The outfielder displayed a quick first-step and rangy actions in either direction. Settled down in a wider base while fielding off his left side. Delivered an accurate 89 mph arm-strength positionally (H ¾ slot).

Pitching: RHP. Starts from the left side; clean separation down the slope and closes the gap from an OTT slot. The FB worked from 77-81 mph with heavy arm-side run and mixed a sweeping CB in the low-60’s. A 70-74 mph straight-CH rounds out the arsenal.

2/12/22

Physical: 6-foot-0, 185 pounds; Broad shouldered, muscular build. 6.98 runner in the 60.

Offensively: RHH. Open setup, with feet wide spread; bat positioned at a 45 degree angle. Drops hands on the way back with an up and down stride for timing. Stays behind the ball while showing an aggressive lower half. Showed a moderate swing path with a two handed finish.  More line drives than flyballs and groundballs with a peak exit velocity of 97 MPH via Trackman. No shortage of hand/bat speed .

Defensively: Starts with an upright /tall setup; walks into ready position while showing choppy feet. Hands are off to the side with a clean transfer. Long arm swing from a high/over the top arm slot.   OF - 86 MPH.

Pitching: Uses a glove side setup while using a side step. Belt high leg drive with shoulders above the hips. Has a moderate stride landing inline with the plate. Moderate arm swing while arm stays in line with 2B; high 3/4 slot. Square to the plate with finish. FB: Peak velo of 82 MPH, while sitting 80-82 MPH; commands both sides. CB: 63-65 MPH; spots and expands.  CH: 69-71 MPH; maintains sameplane

6/15/21

Physical: Uber-athletic, projectable 6-foot, 180lb frame with some strength that carries. 6.88 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH - Upright, even stance at shoulder-width as the hands operated high to start. Utilized a directional lift and replace stride out towards the pitcher initiating through a twitchy, flat path into the hitting zone. Hit into a stiff front side with clean barrel actions, staying on a line through the middle of the field with some feel for extension on the backside. Worked all the way up to a T97 mph bat-exit velocity showing good connection at the plate and added a near 320 foot batted ball distance with doubles PWR at the plate. A 55% fly ball rate pointed towards the ability to lift the baseball at a consistent rate posing as an extra-base hit threat. 

Defensively: The primary outfielder featured confident movements, shifting laterally before gaining momentum down through the baseball. Fielded inward softly at the middle of his body, turning the shoulders and getting in line on the gather (clean exchange) while releasing from H ¾ slot (accurate, T86 mph arm, corner OF projection).


2/06/21

Physical: Well proportioned, durable 6-foot, 180-pound frame with recent added strength over the offseason, athleticism present; 7.33 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH - Balanced, even setup as the hands started with quick rhythm above the shoulder. Utilized a short lift and replace stride with fluidity in the timing mechanism; the barrel worked through a short, flat path and into the hitting zone. Recorded a 42% fly ball rate pointing towards loft at the plate evidenced by a 342 peak batted ball distance to the pull-side. Could run it out of the yard on occasion with advanced hand speed (25 mph) allowing for a huge power ceiling down the line (27.5 G’s of rotational acceleration). A 77% on plane efficiency flashes the bat to ball skills present at the plate; was up to a peak of 92 mph bat-exit velocity during batting practice. 

Defensively: The primary outfielder featured above-average feel for routes and reads off of the bat; got downhill in a hurry fielding off of the left side of his body, quick transfers and solid pace allowing for accuracy out of a high ¾ slot (81 mph).

Pitching: RHP - Average pace in the delivery, good in line drive out towards the plate, and repeatable high ¾ slot on the way through. FB ranged from 73-76, T77 mph while holding the zone at a 50% rate. Mixed a slow breaking 63-65 mph CB with feel for spin and countered with command of a 66-68 mph CH (67% zone rate).


6/15/20

Physical: Athletic, physical 5-foot-11, 165-pound frame with noticeable strength in the movements 7.09 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH. Tall, even setup with the hands resting on the shoulder; utilized a barrel wiggle at the top of the load coupled with a short lift-and-replace stride to initiate his swing. Some twitch in the hands allowing for a quick barrel to enter the hitting zone though a slightly uphill path. Displayed feel for the hands while hitting into a stiff front side and registered a 91 mph bat-exit velocity per Trackman Baseball. 

Defensively: The OF arrived to the ball on time with regularity utilizing downhill momentum and advanced footwork to play through the baseball towards the target. Showcased a low center of gravity generating easy lateral movements to both gaps during defensive evaluations. A soft glove hand played out in front yielding accurate throws out of a high ¾ arm-slot. OF - 84 mph

Pitching: RHP - Works from the far left side of the rubber utilizing a quick pace and a pause in the stack with some hip coil while coming through a high ¾ slot with a moderate takeaway on the front side. FB was 72-74 T75 with command mixing in a 60-63 mph CB showing 11/5 and a 63-66 mph straight CH.

2/22/20

Demonstrated feel for a long and lean 5-foot-8, 158-pound frame with athleticism in his actions and room to fill out as he matures. The right-handed hitter begins with a tall, even stance utilizing a quick lift-and-replace stride to initiate his swing. Generated noticeable weight shift to the front side creating a flat barrel path upon impact into the hitting zone. Showed off some raw athleticism in his swing with a twitchy lower half. Recorded a 77 mph bat-exit velocity during batting practice and ran a 7.23 60-yard dash. The primary outfielder showcased adequate footwork arriving to the ball on time and playing through it with regularity. Took advantageous routes to the ball with a low center of gravity yielding accurate 83 mph arm-strength with carry out of a high ¾ arm-slot from his position. The right-handed pitcher sat 76-78 mph out of a slow-tempoed windup with crossfire. Mixed in a 62-65 mph curveball with 11/5 action featuring occasional backdoor movement with depth.
