01/22/2017 - College PREP - Jackson, MS Beckett is a solid RHP/C and has a promising future behind the plate. Behind the plate, feet are aggressive and active as he works in line to his target, through a clean transfer / exchange as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Pop times show in the 2.00 range with accuracy and on line carry to his throws. He displays an athletic setup with soft hands that stick balls in the zone, displaying a soft glove. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process but needs to work to get down quicker and cover all holes to improve grade. At the plate he shows an open setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive approach. He has strength in his swing with power showing best to the pull side. Barrel accuracy is a plus with the baseball jumping off the bat when centered. On the mound, delivery is sound / repeatable allowing his arm action to work free to the plate. Fastball showed a range of 76-81 mph. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup, showing a feel for pitch with tailing action but velocity is too close to fastball. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. With 2 years to further develop, Beckett has potential with time and room to progress his game.
