12/18/16 - Home-1st: 4.58, Position Velocity:  IF-84, OF-87, Exit Velocity: 85
6-foot-0, 160-pound, RHH hits from a wider and slightly open stance with his hands just behind is ear to start, uses a short rhythmic stride and movement down and back with his hands to get loaded, lower half works put tends to pull his body forward through contact, swing plane is pretty flat through the zone and allowed him to produce some consistently solid contact late in his round, strong kid.  Defensively, showed good hands and footwork in the infield, played through the ball well, arm action was shorter but explosive through a high ¾ slot, showed athleticism by also participating as an OF.

12/18/16 - Max FB: 83, FB: 81-83, CB: 71-73, CH: 74-75,
6-foot-0, 160-pound, RHP threw exclusively out of the stretch during this bullpen, high and athletic leg lift gets him gathered with even shoulders at the top, strides in line with the plate and uses a long but quick arm action through a near over-the-top slot that seemed a little higher than at his previous event, finishes with a slight and under control fall toward the 1B side.  Fastball was mostly straight but showed some run at times, breaking ball was more like a slider with late 11/5 to 10/4 shape for strikes, changeup showed run through the zone and was also thrown for strikes, athletic kid.

9/4/16 - Home-1st: 4.66, Position Velocity:  IF-79, Exit Velocity: 84
6-foot-0, 160-pound, RHH hits from a taller and slightly open stance with a little bit of pre-pitch hand movement to stay loose, uses a pretty conventional stride and movement back with his hands to get loaded, lower half gets through most of the time but stays tall and doesn’t provide as much torque as possible, hips glide forward, some drag in flat bat path but stays through the ball well, stronger than he looks.  Defensively, showed good hands and pretty solid footwork in working around and through the ball at shortstop, exchange is pretty efficient and leads to a short and quick arm action that produced accurate throws with carry across the infield.

9/4/16 - Max FB: 82, FB: 78-82, CB: 72-73, CH: 74,
6-foot-0, 160-pound, RHP threw exclusively out of the stretch and used a quicker and athletic movement toward the plate, leg lift gets his front side closed but opens back up a little soon, stays very much aligned throughout his delivery and lands in that same manner, finishes nearly straight up and down with his trail leg landing closer to 1B, longer arm action comes through a high ¾ release point. Fastball stayed mostly straight with some occasionally slight run through the zone, curveball showed 11/5 shape, and his changeup was a decent change of pace and can be thrown for strikes.
