6/12/19

6-foot-1, 195-pound, big-league type body that fills well. Physically mature looking, while still having plenty of room for more potential. Offensively, creates good separation with his load to stride along with limiting his head movement. Attacks quickly through the zone while displaying above average bat speed. Has a tendency to drop the barrelhead at times causing rollovers. Defensively, displayed good fluid footwork and release from the outfield. Potential to be a plus defender with good pop at the plate.  

7/3/18 - Max FB: 79, FB: 74-77, CB: 62-65
6-foot-1, 175-pound, LHP picked up a couple innings due to an injury, but profiles best as a position player.  Medium, athletic frame w/ well-proportioned lean strength throughout, projectable.  Pitches from a full wind-up into H ¾ release from the third base side of the rubber.  Throws slightly across his body w/ long arm action in back.  Clean, repeatable delivery.  Downhill plane at times.  FB shows arm-side run.  Big downer CB w/ proper shape, late bite.  Got 3 strike-outs on the pitch, throwing it 5 times.  Around the zone w/ his 2-pitch mix.  Generated 3 swing and misses on 10 swings.

7/3/18 - Home-1st: 4.15, Position Velocity:  OF-76, Exit Velocity: 88

6-foot-1, 175-pound, LHH showed very similarly to his performance at the Top Prospect Games, gave a better in game home to first time with the 4.15 down the line on an infield single and collected 3 hits in 4 at-bats.  Medium, athletic frame w/ well-proportioned lean strength throughout, projectable.  Offensively, hits w/ a slightly open, slightly crouched stance w/ short hand rhythm into stride to slightly open and proper hand load.  Generates above average bat speed through the zone.  Pull oriented approach w/ lot of line drives.  Quick to the ball w/ knack for barrel.  At his best when he is spraying line drives gap to gap and staying within himself, laying off the high pitch.  Projectable pull power.  Plus-plus runner gets to top speed quickly.  Defensively, shows the tools to play CF w/ ability to cover gap to gap, projectable arm strength.

6/13/18 - Home-1st: 4.44, Position Velocity:  OF-76, Exit Velocity: 87
6-foot-1, 175-pound, LHH showed intriguing plus run speed and bat speed while collecting 3 hits in game.  Medium, athletic frame w/ some present lower half strength, super projectable.  Has just scratched the surface of his frame potential.  Offensively, hits w/ an open, slightly crouched stance w/ short hand rhythm into proper stride and load.  Generates above average bat speed through the zone.  Pull oriented approach w/ lot of line drives when right.  Ball jumps off the barrel.  Can get over rotational at times, learning to stay through the baseball and maximize swing consistency.  Projectable plus runner who has given plus run times in game this spring.  Defensively, moves well in the OF w/ carry to target arm strength, tools to stay in CF.
