3/17/19

5-foot-11, 161-pound, long, lean, wiry strong athletic frame, with room for added strength. One of the better defenders around, a right-handed hitting middle infielder, can play on either side of the bag. The hands and actions are smooth and quick, feet move throughout. Works low to the ground, fields out front. The arm was clocked at 77 mph, its clean and quick, working out of a natural ¾ slot. All throws were accurate and on the bag. The feeds and turns starting the double play were correct, with timing and rhythm. At the plate, hands are loose at the shoulders, bat having tilt to it. Wider, more open lower half, small pick up and put down with stride foot. The swing is level to up, barrel stays in the zone a long time, looking to spray the baseball to all fields. A contact guy, had a tee exit velocity of 82 mph and ran 4.36 from home to first. Solid follow for me high defender, can control the stick.

Tee Exit Velocity: 82 mph
Arm Velocity: 77 mph
Home to First: 4.36

5-foot-10, 155-pound, average, lengthy athletic frame, shows to have wiry strength, has plenty of room to fill out. A right-handed hitting middle infielder, defensively is advanced. The prep steps are good, works from the ground up, hands are soft out front with an easy transfer and clean footwork. Moves well laterally, soft catch on the backhand play. The arm action is clean and loose on the backside. The arm was clocked at 73 mph, works out of a higher ¾ slot, with carry across the diamond. Attacked and performed the slow roller pro move. At the plate, looks to spray the ball from gap to gap. The stance is slightly open, wider than shoulder width. The hands are loose at the shoulders, with the bat starting in a tilted position. The swing is level to up, keeps the hands inside the baseball well, with barrel staying in the zone a long time. The tee exit velocity was clocked at 81 mph and ran a 7.46 sixty yard dash. Projects for me on either side of the bag, continued strength is a must, game has progressed nicely.

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.46
Exit Velocity: 83 mph
Arm Velocity: 73  mph

5-foot-10, 150-pound, long athletic frame with plenty of room to fill out. A middle infielder with plus hands and feet on defense. The arm velocity from shortstop was clocked at 77 mph, its clean and fluid, works out of a ¾ to high ¾ slot. Showed to be able to play on both sides of bag, with good starts and turns on the double play. The sixty yard dash time was 7.61. At the plate, he is a right-handed hitter with a slightly open stance. His feet are slightly wider than shoulder width and he uses a decent sized leg kick. The back elbow starts high. He keeps his hands inside the ball well and can spray the ball from gap to gap. The tee exit velocity was clocked at 81 mph, and that number should continue to climb as he adds strength. Good looking young player who will get better and better as he adds strength. Keep an eye on him.

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.61
Exit Velocity: 81 MPH
Arm Velocity: 77 MPH

5-foot-10, 155-pound right-handed hitting infielder. Ran a 4.69 down the line on his dig to first base. The glove is solid in the field, and the feet need to continue to improve on working to and through the ball. Threw 70 mph across the diamond. The frame is lanky and additional weight showed aid his game. I liked the bat, tee exit velocity of 79 mph. Sets up with his feet even, front foot slightly open. Uses a knee to knee timing mechanism on the bottom half as he launches into the swing. The path is long but he gets the barrel there on time. The second round of batting practice he took was outstanding. Follow the bat.

Tee Exit Velocity- 79 mph
INF Velocity- 70 mph

7/18/17

5-foot-10, 150-pound, thin, long, lengthy athletic frame with tons of room to fill out and add weight on. The top tool is his ability to defend up the middle, the hands and actions are super smooth. The approach into the baseball is correct, works from the ground up, fields out front and feet move crisply throughout. The arm is clean on the backside, works out of a natural ¾ slot, clocked at 69 mph, look for it to continue to climb as he physically matures. Showed an above average pro move, moved extremely well to both sides. Offensively, made hard contact throughout the day. The stance is open to even, with slightly more weight on the back side. The hands are loose, set just below the shoulders, wrist is cocked and bat has some tilt to it. The swing is level through the zone, finishes at shoulder height with two hands. The swing has extension on contact, with barrel having whip and life to it. The tee exit velocity was 76 mph, and ran a 4.82. Strength is a must, projects for me as more of a second baseman down the road.

Home-First: 4.82
Exit Velocity: 76 MPH
Arm Velocity: 69 MPH

2/18/17

5-foot-9, 140-pound, thin wiry athletic frame, actions and movements are free and loose, has plenty of room for future development. A high end defender, can really pick it on defense. The prep steps and footwork are good to the baseball, gets behind the ball, uses his legs extremely well getting low to the ground to field, keeps his head right on the baseball. The hands are soft, works from the ground up, moves extremely well to both sides with easy flow. The backhand play was made easy, balanced throughout. The arm has whip like action to it, clocked at 74 mph across the diamond with whip and carry to it. Offensively, hits from the right side, the hands are loose at shoulder height, bat has some tilt to it. The feet are slightly wider than shoulder width and starts open. The load has some coil to it, with a toe tap and bent knee  for timing, stride could get back to even better at times. The swing is loose, barrel has some whip to it out front, finishes it with two hands at shoulder height. The approach is more middle to opposite, keeps his hands inside the baseball and isn't afraid to go the other way.  Strength is a must, big time follow for me with the ability to play defense up the middle.

Home - First: 4.35
Exit Velocity:77 mph
Arm Velocity: 74 mph
