Richmond Braves Workout

Strong frame with some present strength standing 6-foot-4, 196-pounds. It is a strong physical body with obvious power potential at the plate. Natural loft in the swing and the path is slightly uphill. Just missed in two at bats on the day resulting in two high fly balls. On the mound the hands break in rhythm, hips and shoulders level moving forward, and lands slightly closed. Arm path is short and works from a high three-quarter arm slot. The fastball was 79-81 on the day and had a solid feel working to the glove side. As he did this winter, Irby had a really nice feel for a 11/5 breaking ball that flashed depth at 65-67 mph. Changeup had some late fade at 70-72 mph. Is a kid with some two-way potential especially with the power projection in the swing, but really like the ability to pound the zone on the mound as well as spin the breaking ball for strikes.

Preseason All-State III

Irby is 6-4 with a strong athletic frame that has some projection left to it. He hits from the right side from a slightly open athletic stance, low leg kick stride on line, smooth load back. Hips rotate with some violence and he maintains some lower half balance. Hands stay inside, slightly uphill line drive swing, strong contact point with some extension through the ball, exit velocity was 90. In the infield, rounds the ball and fields with average hands, clean exchange, throws from a three-quarters arm slot, position velocity was 81. Showed versatility taking balls in the outfield where his velocity was 86. On the mound, he throws from a higher three-quarters arm slot, long free arm action and normal effort to his delivery. Shoulders are uphill and closed, lands square with an athletic finish. Fastball was 77-80, touching 81, with some sink to it. Curveball had good armspeed and was 68-72 with sharp 11/5 break. Change-up had good armspeed and was 72-73 with some sink.
