6/13/18 - Home-1st: 4.69, Position Velocity:  IF-81, Exit Velocity: 83
6-foot-0, 165-pound, RHH picked up a double in game.  Medium, athletic frame w/ lean strength, super projectable.  Has just scratched the surface of his frame potential.  Offensively, hits w/ a slightly open, slightly crouched stance w/ bat resting on his back shoulder into stride to square and proper load.  Generates bat speed through the zone.  Quiet, repeatable swing.  Gets rotational at times, learning how to keep lower half and hips through the baseball and not leaking.  Pull-oriented approach w/ lot of line drives when right.  Projectable average runner.  Defensively, moves well w/ soft hands, plays through the ball well w/ arm strength w/ carry to target.

1/15/18 - 60 Time: 7.56, Position Velocity:  IF-74, Exit Velocity: 86
6-foot-0, 165-pound, RHH showed improved exit velocity from when we last him this summer.  Medium, athletic frame w/ present lower half strength, projection.  Offensively, hits from an open, slightly crouched stance w/ back shoulder hand location.  Stride to square w/ proper hand load.  Pull oriented approach w/ repeatable swing.  Shows pull power.  Consistent barrel feel w/ gap power.  Easy, low effort swing.  Defensively, shows solid feet and hands w/ quick release.  Arm strength plays better than infield velocity suggests.  Very intriguing SS prospect to keep an eye on this spring.

6/14/17 - H-1B: 4.64, Position Velocity: 80, Exit Velocity: 83
6’0, 155-pound, RHH is an athletic 2020 that continues to show improvements each and every time we see him play.  Malone still has plenty of room to add some strength to his wiry frame and will begin making even bigger jumps once that starts to commence.  He has a balanced approach at the plate and showed the ability to spray line drives to all parts of the field throughout his round of BP.  Malone gets through the ball well and could develop some decent power in the coming years.  Defensively, he showed sure hands and the ability to make a vast array of plays from the left side of the infield, although he could play through the ball a little more aggressively.  Malone’s arm slot helps create solid carry on his throws across the infield. 

6/14/17 - Max FB: 78, FB: 76-78, CB: 61-62, CH: 70-71, 
6-foot-0, 150-pound, RHP is a young and athletic prospect with room in his frame to continue growing and improving over the next 2-3 years.  Malone threw exclusively out of the stretch and used a simple leg lift that didn’t quite load up his backside, but jumped on the hitters.  His arm works pretty well after creating quite a bit of shoulder tilt toward the plate.  Fastball was mostly straight and his curveball showed 12/6 shape with a lot of movement.  Changeup showed a little fade at the plate.

7/26/16 - Max FB: 81, FB: 78-81, CB: 60-63,
5-foot-11, 150-pound, RHP threw completely out of the stretch and used a drop of his hands into his leg lift that created some decent movement at the beginning of his delivery, gathers well with some good shoulder tilt and stays under control throughout, finishes very slightly to the 1B side.  Long arm action that drops the ball just below his back hip before coming home leads to an over-the-top arm slot and a good downhill plane on his pitches.  Fastball showed some very slight run but came across very firm for a 2020 graduate, curveball showed 11/5 shape and was used to sneak a lot of strikes across the plate.  Definitely a 2020 to keep an eye on.

7/26/16 -  Home-1st: 4.51, Position Velocity:  73, Exit Velocity: 72
5-foot-11, 150-pound, RHH hits from a wide and slightly open stance, uses a short and quick stride and no real movement of his hands to get loaded, lower half gets through but fires about the same time as his hands and doesn’t create much separation, bat path is a touch steep and could be flattened by loosening up a little bit, Malone did hit some solid balls in BP and had a single in game play.  Defensively, showed above average hands and footwork, fields the ball a little deep at times but you can tell he is making a strong attempt to play through the ball correctly, average arm strength comes through a high ¾ release out of short arm action and a transfer that sometimes includes a glove pat in the middle.
