VA/DC PreSeason All-State Central

Whaley is 6-0 with an athletic 181 pound frame that has some strength present and plenty of projection left to it. He hits from the right side from a slightly open balanced athletic stance, strides on line, loads down and back. Hips rotate completely with some violence and he maintains good lower half balance. Hands stay inside, quick to the ball, uphill swing path with some strength at contact and extension through the ball, showed a good approach working primarily gap to gap, extra base power in the alleys, generates loft and carry to all fields, exit velocity was 88. In the infield, rounds the ball and fields with a wider base and average hands, works through the ball to a clean exchange, throws from low three-quarters arm slot, short arm action, position velocity was 76. Ran a 7.31 60 yard dash. On the mound, he throws from a low three-quarters arm slot, longer free quick arm action and some effort to his delivery. Drop and drive delivery, shoulders are uphill and closed, lands closed  with a slight fall off finish and some recoil. Fastball was 79-81, with some downward angle and hard late armside run to it that gets some depth. Slider was 70-75 with good armspeed and sharp 10/4 break to it. Change-up was 74-75 with good armspeed and heavy fade to it.
