Bailey is a 3B/RHP prospect who will graduate in 2024. Tall frame athletic build, well pre-portioned, and plenty of room to add more strength throughout. At 3B, he showed ability to cover ground in all directions and makes the routine plays. Creates good fielding angles and showed a good glove angle. Made accurate/on-line throws from a 3/4 arm slot, with loose arm action, and an arm velocity up to 78mph across the diamond. On the mound, he gets a good rear hip coil, with a good balance point, and works with good direction. He showed a clean arm and gets good extension out front. Throws a FB that sits 73-76mph with some movement in the strike zone, a 9/3 shaped breaking ball, and a developing changeup with some movement. At the plate, he hits from an athletic and open stance. Takes a short glide step, with good hip turn, and ability to stay in his legs throughout swing. Hit balls to the pull side with a bat exit velocity up to 85mph. With 3 years of continued growth and development, we foresee this 2-way prospect making huge strides on the baseball field.

Bailey continues to shine on the diamond. At 3B, he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork as he works to square ground balls and plays through with his body. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. He moves well laterally with range improving as he continues to improve foot quickness. Throws are accurate with carry (80 mph velocity) across the diamond. At the plate, power potential has improved through an open setup. Hands are quick (81 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. On the mound, arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date at 77 mph. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with loose spin and gradual break. 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 positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable.
