12/27/2016 - Under Armour Baseball Factory Recruiting Classic Austin tall, lean athlete who is a great teammate and loves to play the game. He shows off plus power at the dish (exit velo= 90mph) and can drive the ball deep into the gaps with his strength. His swing is level with good feel for the barrel and fluid actions in the box which lead to lots of hard hit balls. He makes consistent contact at the plate and gets extension through the ball to generate backspin and carry to show that power, with potential for more. Behind the plate, he shows efficient feet to both block and pop up to throw. His hands are both soft to receive, as he sticks pitches in the zone, and quick to release and make accurate throws to second. On the hill, he features a low 70's fastball and 11-5 breaking ball from a low 3/4 arm slot to show some deception to hitters. He battles in every at-bat, never giving in and using his fastball that flashes arm side action to compete with and put away hitters. Further developing his mechanics and feel for pitching will allow him to realize the potential he has on the mound. Austin is a very intriguing prospect who we look forward to continue watching as he develops.
