Brodie continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now a 7.30 runner. At the plate is where he has improved the most, now displaying solid hitting/power potential through an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work to and through a shorts direct swing path, creating extension. He has strength (84 mph exit velocity) in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel with gap-to-gap pop. Behind the plate, feet are active as he works in line through a clean transfer/exchange as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Pop times show a range of 2.40 with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. He shows a squared setup and presents a soft mitt out front and utilizes his body through the blocking process but will benefit by working to get body down sooner. Brodie has a bright future in this game and we look forward to seeing what the future holds.
