Chase continues to shine on the diamond. On the mound, he gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He works with a loose arm and extends through on his release, staying inline towards the plate. Fastball shows a range of 77-78 mph. Breaking ball displays 2/8 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with sink. Off speed pitches show as quality pitches that will get outs. Control is well above average as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. In the OF, he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls but needs to work to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he increases foot quickness. At the plate, he shows an open setup. Hands are quick (86 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive swing path.
