8/18/19

60 Time: 7.46, Inf Velo: 81, Exit Velo: 86

6-0, 182 pound, strong well-built athletic frame. Offensively, starts tall and slightly open with his hands relaxed and in a neutral hand slot. Looks physically mature in the batters box with the ability to produce hard line drives with good carry all over the field. Very fluid throughout his entire swing with a quick and whippy barrel as he enters the hitting zone. Shows the ability to square the ball up consistently. Uses his body and stays in his legs well throughout his swing. Keeps his barrel in the zone long and gets good carry on his ball. Defensively, moves well laterally. Middle Infielder by trait, but could easily transition to a 3rd Basemen role nicely at the next level with his athletic frame and size. Displays smooth glove-foot rhythm and takes good angles to the ball. Has the ability to drop down to multiple arm angles with accurate throws. Gets good carry on his balls with a quick and accurate transition. . 

2/3/19 - 60: 7.31, IF Velo: 79, Exit Velo: 86

5-10, 185-pound middle infielder continues to improve every time we’ve seen him, generating an 86 mile per hour exit velocity on this day.  Medium, athletic frame w/ well-proportioned lean strength, some physical projection.  Offensively, hits w/ a straight on, slightly crouched stance w/ quiet hands into short leg kick and proper load.  Understands how to use his lower half to generate bat speed.  Up the middle approach w/ lot of line drives when right.  Learning how to take the same swing every time, when hips stay through the baseball and arrive at same time as the hands, shows ability to drive the baseball to his pull side.  Projectable pull power.  Defensively, shows solid hands and footwork w/ carry to target arm strength.

2/3/19 - Max FB: 81, FB (79-81), CB (65-66), CH (74-76)

5-10 185-pound righty shows intriguing tools on the mound, but likely profiles best as a position player.  Medium, athletic frame w/ well-proportioned lean strength, some physical projection.  Pitches from a full wind-up into ¾ release from the first base side of the rubber.  Throws across his body, presenting some deception.  Simple, compact delivery.  Straight FB shows occasional short arm-side run.  Medium downer CB flashes proper rotation and shape.  Firm straight CH.  Around the zone w/ 3-pitch mix, projects to command.

9/30/18 - Max FB: 83, FB: 79-83, CB: 68-70
5-foot-10, 185-pound, RHP struck out 2 in his 2 innings of work.  Medium, athletic profile w/ well-proportioned present strength, some physical projection.  Pitches from a full wind-up into ¾ to H ¾ release from the first base side of the rubber.  Drop and drive style delivery.  Quick arm.  Angle.  Straight FB shows occasional short arm-side run.  Medium downer CB w/ proper shape and rotation, flashes late bite, above average depth at separate times.  Sprayed the zone on this day, control came and went at various times.  Tools to command.

9/30/18 - Home-1st: 4.69, Position Velocity:  IF-81, Exit Velocity: 83
5-foot-10, 185-pound, RHH picked up a hit in game while showing zero swing and miss and an intriguing all-around profile.  Medium, athletic profile w/ well-proportioned present strength, some physical projection.  Offensively, hits w/ a straight on, slightly crouched stance w/ short hand rhythm into shift of weight w/ short leg kick and proper load.  Generates bat speed through the zone.  Short to the ball w/ quiet and repeatable swing.  Up the middle approach w/ lot of line drives when right.  Gap power type w/ projectable pull power.  Defensively, moves well at SS w/ good footwork, soft hands, plays through the ball well w/ arm strength to make all the plays.

6/27/18 - Max FB: 83, FB: 81-82, CB: 67-69, CH: 75-76
5-foot-10, 163-pound, RHP showed intriguing 2-way potential w/ a quick arm on the mound.  Medium, athletic frame w/ some present lower half strength, projectable.  Just scratched the surface of his frame potential.  Pitches from a full wind-up into low ¾ release from the first base side of the rubber.  Rock and fire type delivery where he drops down on his back leg before attacking the hitter.  Learning to consistently repeat his delivery, varies the timing in his balance point.  Can get stronger with his glove side, fights through it at times.  Throws across his body.  FB shows short arm-side run.  Tight medium downer CB at its best, can get slurvy.  CH w/ arm-speed, occasional fade and sink.  Around the zone w/ his 3-pitch mix.

6/27/18 - 60 Time: 7.41, Position Velocity:  IF-82, Exit Velocity: 79
5-foot-10, 163-pound, RHH shows enough tools to be a legitimate 2-way prospect.  Medium, athletic frame w/ some present lower half strength, projectable.  Just scratched the surface of his frame potential.  Offensively, hits w/ a slightly open, slightly crouched stance w/ short hand rhythm into leg kick to square and low hand load.  Generates bat speed through the zone.  Arm bar w/ some stiffness through the zone.  Projectable pull power as frame matures.  Projectable above average runner.  Defensively, moves well at SS w/ projectable carry through target arm strength.  Some length in the release, but features soft hands w/ ability to make all the plays.
