08.07.18
6 feet 6, 190-pound lanky build. Room to continue to add strength.  Hits from the right side with an athletic setup and short stride during his load. Balanced swing with above average bat speed. Gets out of his legs at times causing his barrel to work long and uphill through the zone. Shows pull power during batting practice that will only improve with added leverage to his swing. Exit velocity recorded at 87 mph. Plays athletic at first base with fluid feet and average hands.  Short arm action with his arm topping at 76 mph across the diamond. Showed power in game driving a ball to left center field. Projectable 2-way player with plus power potential.  Recorded a 7.32 in the 60-yard dash. 
Frame continues to project on the mound.  Fastball played harder than gun reading, sitting 82-85.  Breaking ball can create swing and miss with downer 12/6 tilt at 67-71 maintaining the hand speed seen on fastball.  Slight hump out of the hand that should tunnel better as he matures.  Good feel for both pitches.  Strike thrower with above average arm speed and a high-3/4 release from an average arm swing that can get length away from the body as it climbs to its high point.  High leg kick turns the lower half slightly.  Tends to fall through balance, down the hill slightly early but recovers with the arm swing.  Average stride length may lengthen with better balance point and strength in the lower half.  Slightly across his body at landing working to create angle.
