Arguably the best infield defender of the day came from freshman prospect, Yaucher, as he showed advanced defensive actions as a soft-handed defender who looks like a true shortstop at the next level, with the body control to make all the non-routine plays. He’s currently a 7.03 runner with a 78 mph arm across the diamond, with all indications that both numbers will continue to improve. That profile matches his right-handed swing, with long levers in a thin 5-foot-9 frame, Yaucher has an athletic swing that projects as he continues to mature and develop. He made consistent on-the-barrel contact while favoring the pull-side.

8/01/21

Yaucher's dependable defense up the middle of the infield served as an anchor for the Team Wisconsin's effective pitching during the Junior Future Games. Yaucher is a lean, high-waisted athlete with smooth, fluid actions defensively that helped him stand out as a prospect, though his competitive work in the right-handed batter’s box was one of our staff’s biggest takeaways from the event. Yaucher has a keen eye at the plate and he swings selectively, which complements his natural feel for the barrel. He was responsible for igniting key moments of offense for Team Wisconsin and he should only grow into more strength that will help him impact the ball with greater authority long-term.

6/06/21

5-foot-7, 135 pounds; athletic frame. Right-handed hitter, top-tap stride; loose hands, whippy bat speed, hit a triple to left against STiKS Academy Black during the PBR at The Rock Championships. Flashed quick feet, soft hands, and quick transfers on throws across diamond from shortstop. Athletic defender with middle infield actions.

6/02/20

5-foot-1, 120 pounds; lean, lanky athlete. Right-handed hitter, rhythmic pre-pitch, balanced setup, fluid leg hang helps him sync up contact simply. Fluid, short bat path with athletic finish. Defensively, smooth, fundamental actions up the middle, ranges well; quicks hands and overall actions on defense.
