6/12/18 - Max FB: 87, FB: 83-87, Avg FB: 83.65, CB: 69-72, CH: 75
6-foot-0, 212-pound, LHP continues to tease with big stuff.  Medium, athletic frame w/ well-proportioned present strength throughout, some physical projection.  Pitched from a full wind-up into low ¾ release from the third base side of the rubber.  Some stiffness in his delivery, learning how to keep his arm on time.  Occasional wrist cock throws off timing at times.  Showing ability to adjust, subtract from his velocity to throw strikes.  Straight FB.  Medium downer CB shows potential when keeps his fingers on top of the baseball.  Tends to get around it, creating more of an early slurve.  Straight CH w/ arm-speed.  Thrower showing ability to make more consistently competitive pitches.  Very intriguing raw arm.

6/12/18 - Home-1st: 4.68, Position Velocity:  OF-83, Exit Velocity: 96
6-foot-0, 212-pound, LHH has progressed a lot as a hitter and continuing to tease the ability to convert his raw tools into production, collecting 3 hits on this day.  Medium, athletic frame w/ well-proportioned present strength throughout, some physical projection.  Advanced frame for a 2020.  Offensively, hits w/ a straight on, very slightly crouched stance w/ short hand rhythm into knee to knee stride and proper hand load.  Generates premium bat speed through the zone.  Pull oriented approach w/ barrel staying in zone for long time.  Has progressed a long way since our first look at Border Battle, where he showed his big tools, but a lot of swing and miss in game.  Swung and missed just twice in 8 swings while showing barrel feel.  If he continues to make jumps like this, watch out, as the raw tools stack up with the best OF’s in the class.  Showed pull power in BP, occasionally top-spins the baseball.  Next step in his development will be consistently getting extension through the zone and generating consistent back-spin.  Projectable above average runner.  Defensively, developing routes and bat reads in the OF, tools to project in CF. Shows easy arm strength in the OF, was up to 87 on the mound.  Legitimate 2-way prospect.

10/22/17 - Max FB: 84, FB: 77-83, CB: 69-71, CH: 68

6-foot-0, 200-pound, LHP shows arm speed w/ feel for spin.  Medium, athletic profile w/ present strength, projection.  Advanced body for young age.  Pitches from a full wind-up w/ rocker step into plant foot.  Leg kick into hip drive and L ¾ release.  Quick arm w/ some effort in throw.  Still learning to repeat mechanics, gets rushed down the rubber at times, throwing off timing.  Straight FB, shows occasional cut.  ¾ breaking ball is a slurve, flashes tight rotation w/ average depth.  Slowed arm down on CH w/ some fade.  Just needs reps on the mound to get in the strike zone more consistently, learn to repeat and trust mechanics.  High level 2-way follow into the spring.

10/22/17 - Home-1st: 4.28, Position Velocity:  OF-81, Exit Velocity: 97

6-foot-0, 200-pound, LHH shows CF tools w/ high level bat-speed.  Medium, athletic profile w/ present strength, projection.  Advanced body for young age.  Offensively, hits from an open, slightly crouched stance w/ back shoulder hand location.  Bat waggler w/ front foot rhythm.  Shift of weight, stride w/ deep hand load.  Generates elite bat speed through the zone.  Pull oriented approach w/ projectable all fields power.  Took a strong BP.  Tools to hit, just needs reps.  Plus runner glides both home to first and in CF.  Defensively, shows plus range w/ good bat reads.  Covers a lot of ground.  Projectable above average arm strength.  5 tool player, will make a big jump with reps after missing last spring.
