Eikhoff has an athletic frame, at the plate he hits from the right side from a balanced athletic stance. Simple swing, trusts hands, keeps them inside and they are short to ball. Bat is quick, doesn't swing out of his shoes, just gets the barrel to the ball. On the mound, throws from a tick below three-quarters with a short, loose arm action, lightning quick with normal effort most of the time, occasionally will up the effort to add a tick. Drop and drive delivery, shoulders level and slightly closed, hides ball well, lands open with some fall off in his finish. Fastball was 87-89 during the outing, touching 90 a handful of times. Pitch has more movement than in the past, with a bit of late run and sink to it, that movement played up when he was down in the zone. Held his velocity when he was in the stretch and held it for all 5 innings of the outing. His effort was a bit up in the fifth, but he also sat 89 that inning. Curveball was 77-82 with 10-4 break to it. Pitch was much sharper in the 81-82 range, got a bit slurvy when it was at the lower end, its also much better when he is burying it down and away as opposed to trying to flip it in for a strike. Showed a few changeups that were 78-82 with good armspeed and fade. Showed ability to command his fastball within the strike zone, moving it in and out.

Eikhoff's first game action since August's PBR Future Games. A little rust to shake off at the plate, but the swing looked good with his normal fast bat and short path. As smooth and as athletic in the infield. On the mound, threw almost exclusively his fastball, sitting 84-86 and touching 87. Kept the ball down, created some downward plane and late life. Threw one curveball at 72. Arm action looked good.

His future may be on the mound, but don't sleep on Eikoff's athleticism and ability to play the infield and hit. He has a controlled swing and solid hands that may interest some schools at the next level. However, his stuff on the mound makes him one of the more intriguing arms in the class. Running his fastball up to 88 mph, Eikhoff has a short, quick arm stroke, and the ball jumps out of his ear from a ¾ slot. With his frame still developing, I expect even more velocity to come, and would not be surprised if Eikhoff is touching 90 mph next spring/summer. He crisply repeated a compact delivery, and shows polish and feel on the mound. He showed feel for a sweeping slider at 74-76 as well as a changeup at 80-81. Both pitches have a chance to be above average in the future.

6.22.17: At the plate, showed his usual short swing and good batspeed, consistently barrels the ball and uses the entire field. In the field, showed good lateral range and quick first step, got to a few balls he had no business getting to. On the mound, short, quick arm action from a three-quarters arm slot, fastball was 84-86 with some late run and downward plane.

5.26.17: Eikhoff has an athletic frame that he can still add weight too. Defensively, has soft hands and a quick first step, very good actions and is a smooth fielder. Played second base in this game, but has a shortstop’s arm. Strong arm that is quick with a lot of carry. Very quick turn at second. Hits from the right side, short leg kick stride with a smooth load, good rhythm. Good hips and balance, short to ball with extension through it. Level swing with a line drive approach, good bat speed, ball jumps off bat. Easy doubles power now with potential for more.

Eikoff is an athletic middle infielder that fields with wide base, quick feet and soft hands. Shows a strong arm from the shortstop position. At the plate, Eikoff has a short swing path, quick hands with power potential and ability to use whole field to hit for high average. On mound, was 84-86 this winter with some run on his fastball and looks like he is in line to make an increase in velocity over the course of the year. Sharp breaking ball, can pound bottom of the strike zone. Younger brother of Nate Eikoff, a 2015 PBR Super 60 alum now attending the University of Virginia.
