12/18/16 - Max FB: 83, FB: 81-83, CB: 67-70, CH: 69-74,
5-foot-11, 190-pound, RHP looked very much the same as he had at previous PBR events, same controlled and consistently paced motion leads to a smooth transition from his leg lift and load at the top to his stride toward the plate, repeatedly finishes balanced and in line, arm action is short but loose and comes through a high ¾ slot. Fastball  was heavy through the zone but didn’t show the velocity we have seen previously, curveball can be a plus pitch with mostly 12/6 shape and some sharp break at the hitter, changeup showed some fade through the zone, throws 3 pitches for strikes.

9/18/16 - 60 Time: 7.38, Position Velocity:  OF-81, Exit Velocity: 79
5-foot-11, 190-pound, RHH hits from an athletic and open stance with his hands in strong position, used an abbreviated leg kick and shorter stride than we saw at the Top Prospect Games in June along with that same push back of the hands to get loaded, lower half is very strong and created a good base for him to work on, bat path stayed fairly flat through the zone with some lift, hit a lot of balls hard in the air and up the middle.  Defensively, stays very much under control and plays through the ball consistently, could be a little more aggressive, clean exchange led to a long arm action from an over-the-top slot, good carry and accuracy on his throws.

9/18/16 - Max FB: 86, FB: 83-86, CB: 69-72, SP: 70-73
5-foot-11, 190-pound, RHP showed even better than he did as a top arm at our Top Prospect Games in June, used the same slow and smooth motion to get gathered and to stay under control throughout, a higher leg lift and a firm hip load at the top get him ready to attack the plate, short arm action remains the same and actually seemed to be a little looser than we’ve seen in the past, explodes toward the plate with great use of his lower half and stays balanced throughout his follow through.  Fastball was heavy through the zone with some slight run, curveball showed sharp and late break with 12/6 shape, changeup is thrown as a splitfinger and had sharp sink with a little bit of cut at the end.  Certainly a top pitcher at this event.

6/14/16 - 60 Time: 7.19, Position Velocity:  OF-86, Exit Velocity: 84
5'11, 180-pound, RHH hits from a fairly tall and slightly open stance and uses a long stride and a solid push back of the hands to get loaded.  Lower half gets wide and through the zone and allows his hands to get in a good position to attack the ball, sometimes gets a little off balance at the end, swing plane stayed flat and allowed him to drive through balls up in the zone but sometimes got a little muscly and steep on balls down, causing him to roll over some ground balls.  Strong kid was able to show some gap-to-gap power in BP.  Defensively, showed a slower and more calculated approach to the ball that sometimes hindered him from working through the ball, fluid footwork and hands, longer exchange and crow hop led to a shorter arm action from a high ¾ -over-the-top arm angle that produced some good arm strength with carry.  

6/14/16 - Max FB: 85, FB: 80-84, CB: 72-73, CH: 74-75,
5'11, 180-pound, RHP  uses and smooth and gathering motion to load up at a high point before driving toward the plate to deliver his pitches from a high ¾ - over-the-top arm slot, good use out of his lower half gives him stability throughout the delivery that helps him in every area, arm action begins with just a reaching back of the hand and finishes loose through release and his firm finish over his front leg, “tall and fall” pitcher really uses the downward momentum from his motion to keep the ball down in the zone and tumbling.  Fastball tried to bear down on righties but didn’t show a lot of consistency as far as velocity goes (anywhere from 80-85 from pitch to pitch), curveball showed 12/6 action that either hung or had some sharp bite with swing and miss potential.  Holloway proved to be the hardest thrower on the Black team at the time of the Top Prospect Games.
