7/26/17 6-foot-2, 190-pound right-handed hitter initiates swing from markedly open set up with stride to neutral. Head is still and there is good balance and rhythm to swing. Hands are direct and quick to the baseball. Hips are quick with an aggressive lower half turn. There is very subtle back elbow leak lending to minor bat drag. Subtle bat drag and length of stride from open to neutral result in some inconsistency being on time. Mechanics from heel plant forward are solid.  A bat exit velocity of 83 mph was recorded.
On the mound, there is good balance and Barker is able to repeat his delivery. There is wrist hook and Barker lands excessively open with stride foot. There is some corresponding early opening and arm drag. Fastball sat 78-79 with substantial arm-side run. Curveball thrown at 68-70 mph lacked bite and depth with 11-5 shape. Changeup had significant arm-side run, but little separation at 73-76 mph.
Defensively, shows good footwork around bag and adequate hands. Athleticism is above average for position. Positional velocity of 78 mph was recorded.



1/28/17 6-foot-2, 190-pound primary pitcher sat 74-76 from a high 3/4 arm slot. Deliberate delivery with good balance has room for additional velocity with improved tempo and greater intent. Curveball resembled a cutter at 70-72 while his 74 mph changeup has some sinking action. The right-handed hitter starts from an open stance and strides closed. Showcased an 85 mph bat exit velocity and barreled the baseball routinely during his round of batting practice. Showed capable actions around the bag defensively at first base with accurate 73 mph arm strength across the diamond.
