10/16/2019 - Arizona Freshman Fall Classic Austin is a tall, strong 1B/RHP prospect who worked hard on his skills during his time at the event. In the field, he shows active footwork and presents his glove out front to field. He has a quick release and allows his throws to remain accurate and carry (83 mph velocity) through his target. Austin can improve as a 1B by improving his footwork around the bag and increasing foot / quickness. At the plate, this LHH sets up in an athletic stance and takes a short stride to the ball. He is smooth getting into his load and comes through the zone well with his lower half. He takes a direct swing to the ball with fast bat speed (83 mph exit velocity) which leads to hard contact. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 72-74 mph with arm side run. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with arm side run. Control is solid as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a great personality, is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.
