01/28/2018 - College PREP - San Diego, CA
Arman is a long, lean (6', 185) two-way player who gets it done as either half of the battery. He is a wall behind the plate, sliding to block everything and keep it close. He works in line to the pitcher with a good chest angle to deaden everything to center. His hands are sure and he tracks the ball well to receive pitches in the zone. At the plate, he uses his strong frame well to generate bat speed and power with strong hands through the zone. He works on a direct path to the ball and makes consistent, square contact to use all fields. On the bump, he has a direct over the top arm slot, extending through his release to get close to the batter and create deception. His repertoire includes a fastball in the mid 70's, a late breaking 12-6 curveball and a changeup with sink. Working on creating a downward plane to the plate will result in weak contact off the bats of his opponents. Arman is an intriguing prospect we look forward to watching further.
