Comments

1/21/18 Initiated swing from open stance with stride to neutral. Early hand leak limited separation. Weight shift and hip turn are passive. Hands are quick and direct. There is feel for barrel. Benefit would be gained from greater incorporation of lower half while working away from hands in weight shift
Defensively, Hands and feet are adequate around the bag. Transfer is clean with long throwing mortion.
On the mound, working out of a low to mid 3/4 arm slot delivery is repeated well with good balance. FB reaching 78 mph was cut to both glove and arm side. CB at 64 mph showed 11-5 shape with rolling action. CH at 66 mph was thrown with solid sell and demonstrated arm side fade.
7/26/17 6-foot-2, 230-pound right-handed hitter initiated swing from open set up with short, knee-to-knee stride staying open. Head is still and there is good balance to swing.  Bailey was able to square multiple balls in batting practice and recorded a bat exit velocity of 81 mph.  Bailey does not fully connect with back elbow creating length.  There is some front hip sway and passive hip turn resulting in uphill swing path. Bailey would benefit from connecting more directly with back elbow and being more aggressive with his lower half turn.
Defensively, hands are adequate and 72 mph arm strength was recorded.  There is tendency to play ball deep and from top down.
On the mound, the right-hander worked out of high to mid-3/4 arm slot with fastball sitting 76-77 and showing some arm-side run. Curveball thrown at 64-66 had 11-5 shape with rolling action and little depth. Changeup lacked separation at 70-71, but was thrown at fastball arm speed and had substantial arm-side run and fade.
Mechanically, Bailey would benefit from staying tall and using his height in staying downhill.  Velocity gains may also be possible through reducing arm drag and avoiding spinning off by driving more aggressively over front side while staying in line
