9/24/20

Carson Newman Commit. 6-foot-1, 177-pounder is a primary shortstop, but got the starting nod on the bump Friday night.  Lanky, athletic frame, who mixed several deliveries and timing mechanisms to throw off hitters, generally using a full traditional overhead windup.  Quick, whippy arm with good tempo. FB worked 82-86 with some arm side action, beating barrels inside. Big 11/5 CB at 68-70 with good shape. 

5/27/20

The 6-foot-1, 177-pound shortstop posted the top infield velo at 88 mph with his big arm from the left side of the diamond.  Showed good hands and solid footwork with a quick snap release which the ball jumped out the hand.  Good movement patterns and athleticism, didn’t blaze down the base path, but potential to add strength and round out profile.  Solid bat speed for next level (Avg: 68.4, Max: 73) and rotational acceleration (Avg: 13, Max: 18.6).  Line drive hitter at this point spraying balls to all fields, potential to develop into table setter hitter.  

5/24/20

SS/RHP, (2021) Gibbs, TN. 6-foot-1, 177-pound lean frame. During batting practice, the right-handed hitter had an exit velocity of 89 mph, showing his ability to drive the ball with power. Begins in a wide stance with a big load, then uses a controlled stride. Level swing plane. Up the middle approach. Athletic showed his live arm in the infield with position velocities up to 88 mph; shows a quick exchange, sure hands and athletic feet. Laterally, movements were athletic and fielded the ball out front. Showed a loose arm action and consistent accuracy to the bag.
