Notes

Comments

11/14/20

Positional Profile: RHP/3B
Body: 6-6, 215-pounds. Long and lanky and lean, graceful body type, highly projectable.
Delivery: Smooth and relaxed, body control over the rubber, high lift, lands with stability w/slight cross body stride, repeatable, finishes w/back leg swinging to 1st side.
Arm Action: RH. Smooth and controlled on backside, some depth to mid-thigh, on time with feet, overhand release, accelerates with ease w/loose quick finish.
FB: T88, 85-87 mph. Attributes of a future plus FB (2502 avg spin), holds plane (18.8 avg IVB) w/enough lateral movement (9.9 avg HM), long extension (6.01) provides length through zone, 55.6 zone %.
CB: 70-73 mph. Wider breaking ball presents as a slurve, minimal depth, smooth break, swept out of zone.
SL: 73-77 mph. Feel of the zone suggests he can use as strike stealing pitch, smooth breaking action w/flashes of bite.
CH: 74-77 mph. Considerable arm side movement, big spin reduction (avg 1450) off the FB with ability to locate down in the zone.

Hit: RHH. Medium feet width, balanced, toward front of box, hands deep with barrel just beyond shoulder in pre-pitch, slight lift into backside load prior to short stride. Easily accelerates the barrel, some arm barring in the load, maintains balance, projectable raw power, high two hand finish; 14.5 max rotational acceleration, 67% on plane efficiency, 68.8% fly balls.
Power: 96 mph exit velocity in live BP via TrackMan. 24.4 max hand speed (22.73 avg), 73.3 max bat speed (69.15 avg).
Arm: RH. 3B - 86 mph. Loose easy arm, controls arm stroke well, accurate with ample carry across the diamond.
Defense: Funnels to mid-section, light feet, some pat of glove in getting to release, above average range capability.
Run: 7.15 runner in the 60.

10/10/20

Defense: Slow laterally, fielded well, good throws across the diamond, potential at third. 
Arm: RH. INF - 85.00 mph.  Strong arm across the diamond, letting it rip on the back hand, showed the ability to make throws from multiple arm angles. 
HitRHH. Slightly open stance, long swing, some pop. Blast motion scores of 41/43/65. Above-average rotation score shows projectability, power efficiency and scales at the next level.
Power: 97 mph exit velocity. 
Run: 6.95 runner in the 60. 

DeliveryPitchers build, long extension, downward plane, good presence.
Arm ActionRH. Downward plane, projectable arm, desire to command makes his velocity suffer at times. 
FB: T86, 85-86 mph. Fastball showed some firmness, when located very effectively, let it go.
CB: 66-68 mph. Telegraphed the curveball, slow breaker, good follow through.
SL69-70 mph. Slider arm action better than curveball, swing and miss potential.
CH75-77 mph. Developmental pitch, showed good feel and release, ability to extend out in front key to this pitch. 

7/23/20

Positional Profile: 3B/RHP
Body: 6-foot-2, 200-pounds. Long and lean and athletically proportioned even on a long body.
Defense: Soft hands, footwork is quality, plays a little tall and tips head upon receiving the ball, made all the plays and is able to access his good arm. Showed nice drop step to his glove side.
Arm: RH. INF - 84 mph. Clean arm action, ball exits well, accurate arm, showed ability to get off the routine throw at 3B and also some arm angle versatility.
Hit: RHH. Tall setup, feet a bit wider than shoulders, looks relaxed, hands held high off right shoulder, very slightly open, small/minimal stride.  Some sweep of the swing into the zone, quiet head, leans back to get behind the ball, doesn't clear back hip, hands lead his hips a bit, there is more in there than he showed.
Power: 95 mph exit velocity in cage front toss session.
Run: 7.21 runner in the 60.

Delivery: Simple start, down up hands w/feet rhythm, pinches knee as he gets to high lift creating some hip torque, on-line stride, heel land w/slight open foot, finishes aggressively.
Arm Action: RH. Fairly compact arm action, clean, works easy, high-3/4 slot
FB: T85, 83-84 mph. Has life through zone, at times extreme run.
CB: 67-68 mph. Short-ish roll type break.
SL: 71-74 mph. Better feel than CB, traditional shape, smooth action.
CH: 72-76 mph. Plus run w/late downward action.
