After spending the fall on the gridiron for the Wolves, Stephens is back in the full swing of baseball, and the right-handed hitter now stands 6-foot, 185-pounds with strength throughout his athletic frame. He showed strong, quick hands during BP with sneaky pop to the pull side. Using a leg kick for timing, he works on a mostly flat plane through the zone allowing a lot of room for error and posting a 93 mph exit velocity. Gets to full speed easy with quick footwork, running a 6.82 60-yard dash. In the outfield, he can cover ground, which he showed running down several balls, and he has a loose arm swing from a high-¾ slot with a top velocity of 89 mph to the dish.

7.23.18
Strong, projectable, very athletic frame at 6-foot, 185-pounds.  Stephens impressed in his BP round by hammering balls off his barrel with carry to the gaps, and he pounded a 91 mph exit velo off the tee.  The right-handed hitter is slightly open in his stance with his hands slightly above shoulder height, he has a high leg kick with his knee turned in to generate torque in his core, loads his weight into the inside of his back leg during his stride, has strong hip turn, a level path with extension through the zone, and a loose finish.  Stephens has strength at the point of contact, and his body works in sync during his swing to provide easy pop. Ran a 7.06 60-yard dash to start his day. In the outfield he has fluid athletic actions. He has quiet feet in his approach, fields the ball out front, plays through the ball with fluidity, has a clean exchange into a crow hop, and topped out at 83 mph making accurate throws to the dish.  In the game he got deep into an at bat, worked a count, and smoked a single off the barrel. Stephens has a very high ceiling, and was one of the youngest players in the event. It will be exciting to watch him develop his tools over the next few years.


02.19.18 
6-foot, 170-pound, athletic, muscular, quick twitch frame. The freshman launched a solo home run to left field in his first at-bat of the day. He also grounded out to third base on an inside fastball, running a 4.5 home to first time.
