Richmond Braves Workout

Hilburger stands 5-foot-11, 170-pounds with an athletic frame. Defensively he possesses the speed and arm strength to play three outfield positions. Ran a 7.0 60 on the day, but is a better in game runner than what the time would indicate. Was 92 mph from the outfield so there is plenty of raw arm strength. Has recently transitioned into a switch hitter, was previously primarily from the right side. Small step to stride from both sides of the plate. Is short to the ball and a slight uphill tilt to the swing from both sides. It appeared as though he needs to see more right handed arms because there seemed to be some pitch recognition issues, but that is understandable and should not be a problem in the long run. The swing is more fluid from the left side and when the timing is on he seems to be more balanced from the left side with the head and the rotation of the body. Offers some two-way potential as he was 80-83 on the mound, but I think long term he will be positional only because of his ability to defend and the athleticism in the swing.

Mid-Atlantic Summer Championship

Projectable athletic frame at 5-foot-10, 155-pounds. On the mound pitches with shoulder slightly uphill with a slight drop and drive down the mound, landing on line at foot strike. Lead leg could stand to firm up a bit sooner on landing. Arm circle longer, but showed some arm speed getting it through from a high three-quarter arm slot. Fastball sat 74-76 and topped at 77 mph on the day. Solid armspeed and intent on the breaking ball that had some depth and 12/6 action at 65-66 mph.
