7/26/17 5-foot-10, 175-pound right-handed hitter had committed to Alderson Broaddus University in days leading up to showcase. He flashed a two way skill set that projects to considerable success at that level. Initiates swing from neutral set up with short controlled stride.  Aggressive weight shift and hip turn away from hands leads to good separation.  There is excellent balance and rhythm to load and swing while consistently staying behind baseball. Bat is on plane early and late. There is tendency to bury bat deep in hands and late head movement created some inconsistency in squaring baseball.  A bat exit velocity of 89 mph was recorded.
Defensively, fields ball bottom up and out front demonstrating confident, soft hands. There is excellent footwork creating appropriate angle and hops.  A clean quick transfer is present with Leonard consistently following throw.  Leonard threw 84 mph across the diamond.  Further evidence of Leonard's considerable athleticism was 7.07 sixty time.
On the mound, sat 86-87 touching 88 mph. Fastball showed subtle arm-side run.  Secondary offerings were inconsistent on this day. Although at it's best 71-73 mph CB had 12-6 shape with moderate depth. Slider thrown at 66-69 mph had short slow 11-7 break. Delivery was repeated well. There was tendency to spin with front side resulting in subtle arm drag. Leonard would benefit from staying closed longer and driving over front side more aggressively.



6/15/16 5-foot-10, 175-pound right-handed hitter starts from a square stance and initiates his swing with a short lift-and-replace stride. Registered an 84 mph bat exit velocity and ran a 7.33 60-yard dash. Displayed solid defensive actions with enough arm strength to remain on left side of infield at next level (82 mph).

Right-hander sat 82-84 from a high 3/4 arm slot during three innings of work in game action. Also flashed a 75 mph slider and a 69 mph curveball with 11/5 rotation. Allowed one run on four hits while striking out two.

9/20/15 5-foot-10, 170-pound right-handed hitter. Starts from a square, wide stance and utilizes a leg-lift stride to initiate his swing from a high hands load. A strong lower half and direct swing path leads to a bat exit velocity of 82 mph. Went 2-for-3 with a double in game one while barreling the ball in all but one at bat on the day. Displayed athletic actions defensively with the ability to make throws from multiple arm angles. Solid frame and 7.51 foot speed projects him best at 3B at the next level.
9/20/15 5-foot-10, 170-pound primary middle infielder impressed on the mound. Sat 80-82 while topping at 83 mph with above average tilt to his fastball. Stays on top of fastball well and showed the ability to cut it at times. 70 mph curveball with 11/5 rotation is a solid secondary offering. Worked two scoreless innings allowing one hit while striking out four.
