06/10/2018 - College PREP - Birmingham, AL Eli is a lean RHP/OF who has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed is outstanding as indicated by his 60 time of 6.95. In the OF, he displays outstanding defensive abilities and utilizes his quick feet well in his lateral movement as he displays range. He works to get behind balls, playing through with momentum to his target. At the plate he continues to shine, displaying outstanding hitting potential through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (82 mph exit velocity) and work to and through an aggressive swing path, creating extension. 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. Fastball showed a range of 73-78 mph. Breaking ball displays 12/6 shape with late break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with sinking action. Off speed stuff show potential as being quality pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to increase as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. With 3 years to further develop, Eli has the makings of a special type player and will get looks from the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.
