8/5/18 - 60: 6.41, Position Velocity: OF: 83, Exit Velocity: 87
OF jumped out for his combination of elite speed and barrel ability, going 4-7 with just 1 swing and miss on 12 swings.  6-0, 165-pounder features a medium, athletic frame w/ high-waist, super projectable.  Has just scratched the surface of his frame potential.  Offensively, hits w/ an open, slightly crouched stance w/ quiet hands into leg kick to square and occasional short hand load.  Quiet, repeatable swing w/ knack for contact, barrel feel.  43 % hard contact in game.  Balanced.  Projectable pull power.  Elite runner gets to top speed quickly.  Aggressive on the bases, looking for any opportunity to steal a bag.  Acceleration allows him to run on slide-steps with good throwing catchers.  Makes the occasional aggressive mistake.  Defensively, speed to play CF.  Was not tested in game in CF gap to gap, showed an abiity to shade positionally depending on the count.  Made a nice diving play on a ball hit to shallow CF.  Arm strength continues to improve, jumping 11 ticks from the event at Memphis.  Developing arm strength, but showing ability to utilize lower half to create strength. 
7/24/18 - Home-1st: 4.25, Position Velocity:  OF-72, Exit Velocity: 84
6-foot-0, 165-pound, RHH showed plus running speed while collecting two hits in game.  Medium, athletic frame w/ high-waist.  Lean strength throughout, projectable.  Offensively, hits w/ an open, very slightly crouched stance w/ short hand rhythm into shift of weight and short leg kick.  Generates bat speed through the zone.  Shows extension through the baseball, creating extension.  Barrel feel.  Gap power type, wants to use his plus speed to leg out extra bases.  Used his speed well on the bases, showed feel for stealing 3rd base, had an idea of how to get jumps.  Defensively, covers ground in the OF w/ carry to target arm strength.
