Eamonn continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a tremendous future on the diamond. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now a superior runner at 6.47 -- one of the top times we have seen this year. At SS, defensive abilities are outstanding as he displays smooth fluid actions. Feet are aggressive as he attacks balls and plays through with his body. Glove action is soft and presents well out front. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. At the plate, hitting abilities are outstanding through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (exit velocity continues to be a plus, showing at 84 mph during this workout) and work through an aggressive swing path. He has strength in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel with gap-to-gap pop. On the mound, delivery is sound / repeatable allowing his arm action to work free to the plate. He shows good tempo through a strong balance point and throws from a high 3/4 arm slot. Arm strength continues to be strong and the breaking ball displays 12/6 shape with late / sharp break, showing as an outstanding pitch. He maintains arm speed on his changeup and shows a solid feel for this pitch as well. Off speed stuff is also strong and he will get outs at the next level with this pitch. Control is outstanding as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Eamonn has consistently performed for us every time we have seen him and he will be a major contributor at the next level.

Eamonn plays the game hard with a mature combination of effort and body control. He's a lean, athletic two-way player with well above average arm strength. Speed numbers continue to improve--down to a 6.83 60 yd, and strength and velocity numbers continue to climb as well. Will continue to refine offensively as he gets more comfortable with hand set/load. And can clean up some stride length/direction issues to improve lower half rotation and direction. Has a good feel for the barrel overall. Aggressive swinger with line drive and gap power. On the mound, he shows three solid pitches for strikes. Breaking ball is hard with plenty of bite, and change is a good velocity differential and has some fade. 92 mph on a run and gun and topped at 82 in the bullpen. More velo in him as he continues to refine and get stronger. Has a chance to be a solid player at the next level at either spot.

Eamonn continued to show as a solid prospect at the UAAAPS Tournament. In the field, Eamonn shows active footwork and covers ground well. He gets into a low position and fields the ball out in front of his body. He has a clean exchange and gains momentum well on his throws which allows them to be consistently on-line to his target. He showed his well above average defensive abilities during game play where he made two spectacular catches near the wall. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a square stance and takes a short stride. He is fluid getting into his load and finishes with a firm front side in his lower half. He takes a direct swing with fast bat speed which leads to hard contact to all fields. On the mound, Eamonn shows a repeatable delivery and commands his pitches well. He has a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 81mph. Slider sits at 72mph with 9-3 break. Changeup sits at 75mph as he throws with fastball arm speed. Eamonn is a skilled prospect who has upside on the diamond.

Eamonn is solid, athletic OF/RHP who has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed is excellent as indicated by his 60 time of 6.98. In the OF, defensive abilities are outstanding as he displays smooth / clean actions. He utilizes his feet well in tracking down balls in taking proper routes / angles. Feet are aggressive as he works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Range is a plus as he reads balls well off the bat and covers a lot of ground. Hands / feet work well together as he gets rid of the baseball quickly with accuracy, and on line carry on his throws. At the plate, he continues to shine, displaying well above average hitting / power potential through a squared setup. Hands are quick (82 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive approach. He has strength in his swing and shows a plus feel for the barrel with gap-to-gap pop. On the mound, delivery is sound / repeatable allowing his arm action to work free to the plate. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with arm side run. Control is solid as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Off speed stuff show potential as being quality pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. With 3 years to further develop, Eamonn has the makings of a special type player and will get looks from the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.
