Tobin has an athletic 5-foot-10, 160-pound frame. Got a chance to see him last Thursday and Tuesday night. At the plate he sets up from a narrow stance, back foot and knee preset in, and hands tight. Simple pickup to stride and lands on line. Hands make minimal load back and are very short to contact staying inside the ball well. Uses the backside of the field well and I think part of that is that the swing path to initial contact is so short. In the video below Tobin drove a 1-1 pitch to right center field with nobody out. This allowed Muir to advance to third and would score one batter later, putting Godwin up 2-0. This is a contact driven swing and shows line drive tendency. Solid feel for the barrel and has good plate discipline. As he continues to mature and add strength it will be interesting to see if the swing lengthens at all and he adds some doubles power to the pull-side gap.

Preseason All-State III

Tobin is 5-9 with an athletic frame that has some projection left to it. He hits from the right side from a slightly open balanced athletic stance, low leg kick stride on line, smooth load back. Hips rotate completely and he maintains good lower half balance. Hands stay inside, short to the ball, slightly uphill line drive swing path with some extension through the ball, exit velocity was 83. In the infield, rounds the ball and fields with a good wide base and above average hands, works through the ball, throws from a high three-quarters arm slot, position velocity was 76. Showed versatility taking balls in the outfield, where his velocity was 82. Ran a 7.07 60 yard dash. He throws from a high three-quarters arm slot, long free arm action and normal effort to his delivery. Shoulders are downhill and closed, lands closed with a fall off finish. Fastball was 76-78, with a bit of late sink to it. Curveball had some armspeed and was 64-68 with late 12/6 break. Change-up had some armspeed and was 63-64 with some sink.
