Notes

Comments

2/12/22

Physical: 6-foot-0, 173 pounds; Muscular, broad shouldered build. 6.79 runner in the 60.

Offensively: RHH. Even setup, with feet just outside his shoulders; upright bat position. Short take back with the hands with an up and down stride for timing. Stays behind the ball while showing a strong lower half. Showed a direct swing path with a high finish.  More line drives than flyballs and groundballs with a peak exit velocity of 89 MPH via Trackman.

Pitching: Uses a center rubber setup while using a side step. Belt high leg drive with shoulders above the hips. Has a moderate stride while landing slightly closed. Long arm swing while showing effortless and fluid actions; high 3/4 slot. Square to the plate with finish. FB: Peak velo of 83 MPH, while sitting 82-83 MPH; arm side run. CB: 68-70 MPH; late action.  CH: 72-74 MPH; fading action. OTHER: SPLT:69-71 MPH; SPLT: late drop.

6/15/21

Physical: Lengthy, projectable 6-foot, 170lb frame with athleticism held in multiple phases. 6.73 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH - Balanced, even stance at shoulder-width as the barrel wagged from up/down and tilted towards the pitcher and back; used a short/directional leg-lift and generated bat head whip through a flat path into the hitting zone. Natural lift in the approach with backspin through the middle of the field while hitting into a stiff front side, posting an impressive 71% line drive rate via Trackman Baseball. Worked his way up to a T91 mph bat-exit velocity and found his most successful swings traveling for extra-bases to pull. Will continue developing into a high level hitter as he holds additional strength. 

Defensively: The primary outfielder demonstrated simple, easy movements in space with above-average pace in the feet; approached with a soft glove hand fielding inward off the left foot and releasing from a smooth, lengthy high ¾ slot with a full arm circle (86 mph, accurate). Able to hold down any of the three outfield positions, though his presence would be most welcomed in CF. 

Pitching: RHP - Started off the middle of the rubber with the feet together, using a medium side rocker and controlled/loose leg lift, driving down the mound with good chest tilt downhill and feel for useful rotation into footstrike. Pounded the zone from high ¾ at 77-78 mph showing ride (T20 inches IVB) for strikes up above the belt. Mixed a short 63-65 mph SL holding the zone at a 43% clip to keep hitters off balance.


2/07/21

Physical: Long-legged, projectable 6-foot, 170-pound frame with athleticism in the actions. 7.12 runner in the 60-yard dash. Riser in the class rankings.

Offensively: RHH - Bent, open stance with the hands high above the shoulder with slight rhythm in the setup. Utilized a short leg lift stride in order to initiate the hands through a flat, leveraged path into the hitting zone yielding a noticeable line drive approach (40% line drive rate) during batting practice. Showcased pull-side feel with a short bat path, but thrived when he could extend on pitches out over the plate. Recorded a 75% on-plane efficiency per Blast Motion hinting at bat to ball skills present while 19.7 G’s of rotational acceleration points towards a developing power ceiling. Notched an 88 mph bat-exit velocity according to Trackman Baseball. 

Defensively: The primary outfielder got downhill early in the routes keeping momentum towards the target with low posture. Fielded off of the left side of his body with feel for pace, showed off improving range to the glove hand side and possessed confidence immediately off of the bat. Flashed an accurate, 84 mph arm strength from a high ¾ slot. 

Pitching: RHP - Started from the middle of the rubber with a deep side rocker while getting up to a high leg-lift position with slight hip coil at the top of the stack. The arm worked loosely with good extension out in front allowing for 81-83 mph FB’s up in the zone. Mixed a developing 70-71 mph CB that backed up on this date coupled with a tunnelled 74-76 mph CH with a low spin profile (1300 RPM average) at near-similar FB release height (4.82 feet). 


7/30/20

Physical: Lean / projectable 6-foot, 157 pound frame with athleticism throughout and versatility in his game. Offensively: RHH. Bent, wide open stance with the chest slightly open and the hands showing quick rhythm above the shoulder. Utilized a leg-lift stride to initiate a flat barrel path into the hitting zone with feel for extension. Long levers played with advanced juice when contacting the ball out in front, short to the hitting zone / long through extension. Stayed relatively high with the posture throughout the swing resulting in hard line drive contact to all fields. Quick twitch in the hands and hit into a stiff front side allowing for a maximum bat-exit velocity of 82 mph during batting practice. Handled velocity well during game action, could get handsy sometimes at the plate but was athletic enough to find knocks even when behind in the count. Defensively: The primary outfielder featured an athletic round of defensive evals with a quick first step and active footwork playing through the baseball with a soft glove hand at the fielding window. Liked to field off of the left side of his body with smooth transfers into an accurate, high ¾ slot (full arm circle) showing advanced arm strength from his position. OF - 81 mph Pitching: RHP - Starts tall from the left side of the rubber, side rocker step into a medium leg lift at waist height, directional drive towards the plate while sitting into a strong backside before pushing out, gets over the front side on land creating slight downhill shape on a 76-79 mph FB out of a high ¾ slot with length to it (2064 rpms per Trackman Baseball). Mixed in a developing 66-67 mph CB with short 11/5 shape and low spin. Countered with a 70-71 mph straight CH with deception upon release out of the same FB window. 


6/29/20

Physical: 6-foot-0, 157 pounds; slender, athletic. 7.12 runner in the 60. Offensively: RHH. Slightly open wide stance with upright bat waggle; hands start closer to center of body, raises hands then short take back in load with an up & down stride. strong lower half with minimal effort with direct path with quick hands. Works through the middle of the field with consistent hard contact; peak Trackman exit velocity of 85 MPH. Defensively: Upright; quick first step, positions body well. clean transfer; standard 3/4 arm slot. OF - 79 MPH. Pitching: Center rubber, even on-line stride and finishes downhill and to 1st base side; repeatable with max effort finish. Smooth clean arm action, high 3/4 arm slot. FB: T 78MPH, 73-78 MPH. FB has some carry and arm side run. CB: 62-64 MPH. CB has 11-5 shape, good separation vertically from FB with some sweeping action. OTHER: KN: 65 MPH. KN had good command with some sinking action.

3/08/20

5-foot-11, 152-pound right-handed hitter starts from a slightly open stance and uses a lift-and-replace stride to begin. Showcased a direct swing path with quick hands while staying behind the baseball. Registered a bat exit velocity of 78 mph and ran a 7.44 60-yard dash. Showcased athletic actions in the outfield while routinely playing through the baseball with 79 mph arm strength. The righty sat 76-77 off the mound from a high 3/4 arm slot with hip swivel to his delivery. Fastball showed arm-side run with a delivery that includes a long arm swing in back. Changeup at 70-72 showed gradual fade and a knuckle ball at 64-66 is used as a third pitch in the arsenal.

3/30/19

5-foot-8, 140-pound right-handed hitter starts with a square stance and utilizes a heel-raise to begin his swing. Displayed advanced hand speed during batting practice with present gap power. Registered a 71 mph bat-exit velocity and ran an impressive 4.16 home-to-first time. Demonstrated active footwork that played through the ball helping accurate 70 mph throws carry towards the plate. The right-handed pitcher sat 65-68 mph with natural cut from a repeatable, high 3/4 delivery. Featured a 57-61 mph changeup that showed small cut action. His 58-61 mph cutter was thrown with advanced arm-speed and flashed a tighter spin than his fastball. Showcased a 56-61 mph knuckleball with occasional tumble.
