5-foot-10, 180-pound, strong, athletic frame, sloped shoulders, good strong lower half. A two-way player, has really developed off the mound. The delivery is compact and inline, fastball touched 89 mph, with multiple 87's. The slider reached 79 mph, is a legit out pitch. The change up has progressed nicely, clocked at 82-83 mph. The arm is electric, with being able to pitch back to back days. The arm action is clean and free, working out of a natural slot.  At the plate, shows good power to both gaps, had tee exit velocity of 87 mph. The swing gets a tick up hill could flatten, a tick. The lower half is under control inline, with a small controlled leg kick. The arm was clocked at 82 mph across the diamond. The hands and feet are clean, work well together, feeds and pivots are advanced. Look for him to stick on the left side. Projects for me long term off the mound, chance to be a pro down the road. 

Tee Exit Velocity: 89 mph
Arm Velocity: 82 mph
Sixty Yard Dash: 6.95

5-foot-10, 170-pound right-handed pitcher. The fastball has good life to it, sitting 88-90 mph. The spin pitch is a slider, wipe out at times, sitting at 76-79 mph. The changeup is a work in progress, sitting 79-81 mph. The delivery is online, above ¾ in slot. The arm is quick on the backside and the ball comes out well. The tracking of the front shoulder comes offline at times as he shows glove pull. The tempo is quick and he shows the ability to spin the slider at any point. When the alignment is cleaned up look for him to make another velocity jump and show improved command of the fastball.  Positionally, ran a 6.98 sixty on the laser. Threw 91 mph across the diamond as the arm has plenty of strength. The feet and glove work appropriately. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 86 mph. The setup is athletic, small pick up and put down of the front foot. The swing has lift and pull to it, needs to get in the middle of the field to tap into his skill set. 

Tee Exit Velocity - 86 mph
INF Velocity- 91 mph

5-foot-9, 160-pound right-handed hitting middle infielder and pitcher. Had a big time day, homered and threw the ball extremely well on the bump. Big time athlete, positionally, ran a 6.81 sixty on the laser at the event. Threw 90 mph across the diamond with accuracy and carry. The glove is solid, and the feet work through and to the ball efficiently. The ability to stay in the field is present at the next level. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 89 mph. The set up is wide in base, small pick up and put down of the front foot as the ball approaches the hitting zone. The path is slightly uphill but the hands work quickly and direct. On the mound, the fastball touched 86 mph, minimal arm side run to the pitch. The spin pitch is dynamite, 75 mph, a little wider than a slider but a college out pitch. The changeup is a work in progress. The delivery is online, slot is above ¾. The lift is athletic, small coil at the top and he does a good job of tracking the front shoulder to foot strike. Big time 2-way prospect at a high level.

Tee Exit Velocity- 89 mph
INF Velocity - 90 mph

5-foot-9, 155-pound, smaller, wiry strong athlete, is super athletic. The top tool is his arm, it's electric, baseball jumps out of his hand. Off the mound, this right-hander has a simple, quick, repeatable delivery. The hands start at the chest and  pushes them to the right side of his frame, which causes command issues at times. The lead leg direction is slightly across the body, has some cross fire action to his pitches. The arm works out of a high ¾ slot, fastball reached 86 mph, mostly in the 82-84 mph, with down action to it. The breaking ball, has slurve action 71-72 mph, it's thrown hard and has a chance to be a legit out pitch. The command needs to improve, has all the makings of being a big time guy out of the bullpen. Offensively, hits from the right side, has a balanced simple approach. The feet are spread out and are even, hands are held higher than shoulder height, bat has tilt to it, hands are loose with pre pitch movement to them. The swing is level through the zone, rolls the hands late, finishes with both hands above shoulder height. The tee exit velocity was clocked at 84 mph, barrel has whip and life to it on contact. During game play collected a single, with advance base running skills. Defensively, can stick up the middle, the catch to throw is very quick, arm was clocked at 81 mph. Showed to have no wasted movement during transfer, moved well to both sides, backhand play was made with ease and came through the slow roller. Big time follow, is a legit two way guy at the current moment.

Home-First: 4.44
Exit Velocity: 84 MPH
Arm Velocity: 81 MPH

 5-foot-9, 150-pound, long wiry strong athletic body. The arms are long from the fingers to elbows, has plenty of room to fill out and put mass on. Defensively he showed well working out at shortstop. The arm has above average strength for his age, clocked at 81 mph, comes out of a ¾ slot, with some tail to it.  The hands are soft, fields ball out front for the most part, keeps his feet moving throughout. The backhand he stayed low and came through the baseball well, as well with the slow roller. Offensively, hits from the right side, the feet are wider than shoulder width and are even with each other. The hands are set just at shoulder height, the swing path is level to up, at times it's in and out quick, could stay on it longer. For timing uses a quick, medium height leg kick. The backside lower half could get involved more, starting the load sooner, will aid in getting the foot down sooner, will be more on time. The tee exit velocity was 83 mph and ran a 7.06 60 yard dash, has an athletic bounce to his step. Good looking young prospect, strength will help his overall game.

Future Games 2018
5-foot-9, 160-pound, smaller, stronger, thick athletic frame. A two-way player, top tool by far is his arm, recorded the top arm across the diamond at 94 mph. The arm has serious strength and carry. The hands are soft on the catch, could attack a bit more and release quicker from shortstop. At the plate, has more of a pull approach, creates lift and loft to the swing.The lower half is under control, could look to get the approach more to opposite gap at times. The tee exit velocity was clocked at 86 mph, ran a 6.83 sixty yard dash. Collected a double with a couple RBI’s in game play.  Off the mound, fastball reached 90 mph, sitting 85-88 mph. The arm works out of a ¾ to high ¾ slot, the arm is fast and quick, baseball explodes out of his hand. The slider is hard at 75-80 mph, has a chance to be a big time put away pitch. The delivery has some rush to it, stays inline, could stay taller on the backside. Receiving attention from ACC schools, projects for me as a big time bullpen arm with his hard slider and electric arm.
