1.20.19
5-foot-11, 165-pounds. Knight started the day with a 6.96 60-yard dash and showed a quick bat that produced hard contact with lift and a top exit velocity of 87 mph. Starting from an open stance, he triggers his hands back and takes a short stride. Slots the barrel in the zone early, working uphill through the zone as he rotates to contact with an inside out path and high finish. In the outfield, he has smooth footwork with a clean exchange, getting rid of the ball quickly with a short, fast arm swing and top velocity of 82 mph.

 

7.23.18
Lean 5-foot-9, 140-pound frame with wiry strength. Ran a 7.20 laser-timed 60 with long smooth strides.  Posted 81 mph exit velocity off the tee, and flashed line drive power in BP. The right-hander has a lot of quick-twitch and looseness in his swing.  Works from an open stance with his hands up high, is in his legs with most of his weight already loaded into the inside of his back leg, has a short simple load and stride back to parallel, stays behind the ball with his body, and has a loose finish to his swing. Knight consistently hit the ball to the middle of the field and to the right side of the field in BP. Has quiet feet in the outfield with a quick and clean exchange where he stays low to the ground, and made low throws through the cut off man (81 mph) to the dish.  


06.05.18
Knight has a lean-strong, quick-twitch frame at 5-foot-8, 130-pounds. He started the day by posting a 7.05 60-yard dash time that should continue to drop as he adds strength to his already long strides. The right-handed hitter showed solid presence in the box with a fluid hack and easy rhythm. Utilizing an athletic leg kick to get started, his barrel stays in the zone a long time. Quick hands with a loose finish allow him to throw the head of the barrel through contact as he transfers his lower half. In the outfield, Knight plays through the ball with fluid actions, clean exchange and quickish footwork. Accurate arm from a high-¾ slot with a top velocity of 78 mph.
