10/28/2017 - 2017 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's Futures West Blake is a solidly-built (6'2"/205) left-handed hitting prospect. He has strong hands that allow him to manipulate the barrel very well. He centers a lot of balls with the ball coming off the bat with authority (95 mph exit velocity). He hits off a balanced base and has good natural hitting rhythm. As a defender Blake shows versatility - fitting well at 1B or LF. He reads balls well in the OF and moves well through both ground balls and routine fly balls. At 1B Blake has a good feel around the bag with sure hands and an accurate arm. Overall Blake is an exciting young player who should be a run producer at the next level.
