TPG East II

Barks has a leaner athletic frame with long levers at 6-foot and 168-pounds. Shorter athletic open stance from the right side. Smooth transition back in the toe tap load, hands are set lower with minimal movement in the load. Lands slightly open and hips rotate completely with some violence. Hands are direct and work inside of the baseball with a level barrel path with plenty of extension and extra base intent. Showed ability to drive the ball to all fields with a top exit velocity of 88 mph. In the field Barks works to square up, feet get set in fielding position early, and fields the ball deeper with average hands. Average exchange and throws 72 mph across the infield with a full arm circle from a three-quarter slot. Ran a 8.48 60. On the mound Barks has a slower paced delivery with some rhythm. Hips and shoulders are slightly uphill throughout the delivery and lands slightly open. Arm action is full from a higher three-quarter slot. Fastball is fairly straight at 69-72 mph and works it around the zone with average feel. The curveball sits 57-60 mph with 11/5 shape and feel for the lower third of the zone.
