7/22/20

6-foot-1, 160-pounds, longer, lean, wiry strong athletic frame, with plenty of room for added weight gains. A left-handed hitting two-way player, showed extremely well on both sides of the field. At the plate, stance is even, taller, relaxed hands at the shoulders. The lower half is under control, longer stride, could get front foot down a bit sooner. The swing in level through the zone, finish higher with one hand above the shoulders, gets through it on the backend. Creating backspin to the baseball, has a chance to hit with power at some point, had an exit velocity of 82 mph. Defensively, feet are soft, move throughout, glove plays out front. The arm action works from a 3/4 slot, clocked at 71 mph, with a ton more in there. Off the mound, working from set position, lift is small, foot under, could get out more. The direction is inline, minimal pull to glove side, tendency to slow down, needs to build more momentum. The arm works from an athletic slot, fastball clocked at 76 mph. The breaking ball is thrown with velocity, tight break at 72 mph. Look for him to stick as a two-way player for some time, Good looking prospect.

Exit Velocity: 82 mph

Arm Velocity: 71 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.66
