5-foot-8, 182-pound, RHP shows feel for spin, manipulating the baseball.  Short, stocky frame w/ present strength throughout, some physical projection remaining.  Pitches from a full wind-up into ¾ release from the third base side of the rubber.  Simple, repeatable delivery.  Can get stronger with his glove-side, is just along for the ride.  Shows ability to manipulate the FB, occasional straight FB, shows ability to get 2-seam life w/ occasional arm-side run.  Medium downer CB comes up out of the hand, works best as a pitch to steal a strike.  ¾ tilt SL w/ proper shape, differentiates from the CB.  CH w/ arm-speed, sink and occasional fade.  Around the zone, shows ability to fill the zone w/ 4 pitches.
8/11/18 - 60 Time: 8.50, Position Velocity:  IF-65, Exit Velocity: 76
5-foot-8, 182-pound, RHH projects best as a pitcher.  Short, stocky frame w/ present strength throughout, some physical projection remaining.  Offensively, hits w/ a straight on, very slightly crouched stance w/ short hand rhythm into stride and proper load.  Rotational swing at times.  Shows an understanding of how to use his frame to generate bat speed.  Showed consistent barrel feel in BP.  Some present doubles power to the pull-side.  Defensively, shows solid hands and developing footwork w/ developing arm strength that plays better on the mound.

5-foot-7, 176-pound, RHP mixed in 4 pitches.  Short, somewhat stocky build w/ some present lower half strength.  Pitches from a full wind-up w/ short rocker step into first base side of rubber.  Balance point into leg drive and ¾ release point.  Glove hand stays down, creating some direction issues.  Shows flashes of getting legs involved.  FB shows occasional arm side run.  Also mixed in a 71 mph sinker.  Medium downer CB w/ proper rotation.  Clear separation from SL, shows loose ¾ tilt.  CH w/ arm-speed and fade.  Around the zone.
