12/18/16 - Max FB: 78, FB: 75-78, CB: 66-67, CH: 73-74,
5-foot-7, 170-pound, LHP seems to be a very polished pitcher who is always around the zone, compact frame is actually used to his advantage to remain consistent, worked at a slightly slower pace than at previous events, uses his lower half well, shorter arm action comes through a high ¾ slot, finishes with a step toward the plate and occasional fall toward 3B.  Fastball showed some good run through the zone, curveball was very sharp with some late break with 1/7 shape, changeup has some late run to it, continues his ability to throw three pitches for strikes.

9/25/16 - 60 Time: 7.32, Position Velocity:  OF-78, Exit Velocity: 85
5-foot-9, 155-pound, LHH hit from the same balanced and even stance we had seen from him at recent events, stays loose and also showed that simple and easily repeatable load as well, bat path remained flat and allowed him to put together a very good round of BP, ability to hit the ball anywhere it is pitched.  Defensively, uses those good hands and footwork to play a solid outfield and make all of the routine plays, solid player.

5-foot-7, 165-pound, LHP showed very much the same as he had the previous weekend at our Unsigned Senior Games but with a little more velocity, Wiley topped out at 79 on 9/18, only to come back and get as high as 82 the following weekend,  same compact and repeatable delivery we have seen from him in the past, uses a shorter arm action that comes through a high ¾ slot to deliver.  Fastball has some slight run, curveball showed some late and sharp 1/7 shape through the zone, changeup was mostly just a change of pace.
9/18/16 - 60 Time: 7.21, Position Velocity:  OF-79, Exit Velocity: 84
5-foot-7, 165-pound, LHH hits from a balanced and even stance with some looseness, uses a short stride and a push back of his hands to get loaded, lower half works and gets his backside through but pulls his upper body forward a little bit, swing path is flat through the zone and produced line drives to all areas of the cage, good potential to hit the ball where it’s pitched.  Defensively, showed good hands and footwork as he played through the ball well and with confidence, stayed fluid, clean transfer led to a shorter arm action through a high ¾ slot, throws were accurate with average arm strength.

5-foot-7, 165-pound, LHP uses a compact delivery that is easy to repeat and doesn’t contain much wasted movement at all, athletic and connected movements but him in some strong positions, hands stay high and keeps his upper body quiet throughout his delivery, shorter arm action comes through a high ¾ slot and only falls slightly toward 3B on his follow through.  Fastball was mostly straight with occasional run, curveball was sharp with 1/7 to 2/8 action for strikes, changeup had fairly consistent sink through the zone.

6/15/16 - Max FB: 81, FB: 79-81, CB: 69-71,
5'6, 160-pound, LHP begins with his hands hanging low in front and uses a more up-tempo motion in which he pulls his hands up with his leg lift and uses some good rhythm throughout, front side gets closed early and stays that way in his initial movement toward the plate, arm action is shorter and leads to a high ¾ arm action without much extension that can look a little stiff, opens up his hips at just the right time to create some good leverage, strides in line and stays pretty balanced while finishing over and a little around his front leg.  Fastball showed some slight cut and was able to get in on righties, curveball was a good pitch with some powerful 1/7 shape and was thrown for a lot of strikes.
