Prospect Spotlight

NOTES FROM THE FIELD, INSTRUCTS:

  • Undersized frame, wiry/twitchy athlete, plus armspeed.
  • Upbeat semi-windup, herky-jerky moving parts, effort through landing, pulls off-line. Long arm-circle, fast H3/4 stroke. 
  • Lively FB 94-97; heavy life, consistent run, best when downhill on top of armside movement. Thrower, limited control/command.
  • Pitches mostly off FB, got one look at a cutter/slider hybrid at 90 mph. 

SUMMARY: Plus athlete, intriguing two-way talent who also plays CF. Ceiling of ML ‘pen arm on the strength of his heater if he refines as a pitcher. Needs to develop more consistent secondary stuff.
