Notes

9/27/20

6-foot, 155-pounder put together a good summer with Blurprint baseball, as a skilled lefty stick at the top of the order. Lean, wiry frame with good projection.  Tall, relaxed open stance with moderate leg kick and consistent timing for barreling up balls.  Shows some pop to the pull side with good bat speed and some projection as he adds strength. Defensively, solid up the middle as he can handle the glove with sneaky range (7.46 runner) and clean transfers.  On the bump, the right hander attacks the zone and throws multiple pitches for strikes.  FB sits 78-80 (T82 this summer) playing up with a high spin rate (Max: 2392 rpm via Trackman). Comes out clean of low 3/4 slot, creating a challenging tunnel off high spin breaking ball at 67-70 (Max: 2571 rpm).  Currently more CB with SL potential with velo uptick, but sharp 11/5 bite that has some swing n’ miss potential.  Showed some feel for CH as 3rd offering with arm side fade.  A step away physically/athletically, but a versatility two-way prospect, who can really spin it, handle the bat from the left side, and provide defensive flexibility.
