Scouting Report

10/03/20

 

UNCOMMITTED - A lean athletic strong 601 190 with a defined muscled overall look w/some twitch behind the plate and can run for a catcher. The bat and the arm play and carry to the next level. Projects confidence in the box w/a semi wider than shoulder width, slightly open stance and carries the bat over his back shoulder at a semi flat angle. Has flex to his knees and takes a short synced up stride as the hands load at a 45 w/good separation and balance. Has hand speed and can hit velocity. Takes a short, quick compact stroke thru the plane of attack into a whippy two hand finish. The ball jumps line to line and can leave the big part of the field. Is a bit raw mechanically in his setup behind the plate and needs to improve his receiving, but has twitch in his lower ½ and is quick to drop and keeps balls in front. Can pick tough pitches and spring to back pick. His throws have carry through the bag and at times flashes a slightly better than avg arm w/avg pop times. A 7.03/60 that’s plenty enough. A versatile defender that also plays 1B and can hold down LF with work. Plays for CBA Summit (UT) in the summer and the NV/UT Braves Scout Team in the fall. Has also played over the past 2 summers with the Ohio Warhawks. Won’t be uncommitted for long.
