7/07/20

An Illinois State recruit, Gauthier produces good whip with the bat head and above-average power potential with his balanced weight transfer, rhythm and loose swing. At 6-foot-2, 170 pounds he has the frame to add weight and gain strength. His strong scores with exit velocity (94 mph), bat speed (73.8 mph), peak hand speed (23.5 mph) and power kW (4.82) further underscore his power potential. Additionally, his on-plane efficiency score of 77% placed him in the top five at the ProCase. Defensively, he showed average arm strength (85 mph) from shortstop with fair hands and actions. His ability to more aggressively play through the ball will likely be developed at the next level. At present he looked to rely more on arm strength to make plays. After a slower start, Gauthier showed to be a present average runner underway while clocking a 7.05 sixty. There will likely be improvement to his run tool due to his athletic, in-line stride and arm swing to go along with a lower effort level. All things considered, Gathier doesn’t have the loudest tools at this point in his career, but they are solid and something to build upon. The arrow is certainly pointing up with proper development.

Illinois State commit. Ranked No. 11 in the state’s 2021 class. 6-foot-2, 165-pound right handed hitting shortstop. Long and lean frame with projection for physical development. Played shortstop and batted third against Great Lakes Baseball Academy on Friday night. At the dish, sets up in an open stance, leg kick stride, draws hands back into load. Loose hands that generated quick bat speed. Finished the game 2-for-4 with a pair of singles, two RBI, and two runs scored. In the field, showed natural actions at the shortstop position. Soft hands, fluid footwork. Throws showed carry across the diamond. Also started for ISA Impact on Thursday, shutting out Top Tier North in the process. He punched out 11 batters in just five innings of work, allowing just two hits and two walks in the process, consistently dodging barrels all game. He worked with rhythm and tempo and a consistently well-located fastball, sitting 80-83 mph. He also regularly mixed in a curveball, 68-71 mph, that he demonstrated real feel for, dropping it into the zone for strikes and burying it low and away to righties.
