PBR Future Games

Projectable frame at 6-foot-1, 170-pounds with athleticism. Simpson offers positional versatility where he projects corner infield and corner outfield long term. Has plenty of arm strength to play third, as he posted a 87 mph positional velocity. At the plate Simpson starts from a square athletic stance, hands load back to separation, and a leg kick to stride landing on line. Quick hands through the zone with slight uphill tilt and displays pull side power to the swing. Simpson hit a double to deep left during our first day of games that would score two. He also put up a 94.78 mph average exit velo, which was the third best average Trackman exit velo during the BP session on the workout day. He is a high energy teammate and is vocal on the field and in the dugout.
