06/02/2018 - 2018 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's National West
Emanuel continues to show as a prospect on the diamond with the makings of a special type player at the next level. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now an excellent runner at 6.85. In the OF not many balls get down that are hit his way. Transfer exchange is smooth as he zips throws (94 mph velocity) on a line through his target. He has the versatility to play all 3 OF spots effectively. At the plate, hitting/power potential has improved. He stands in with a solid/strong base and has fluid rhythm to load. Barrel delivery is short/quick with aggression (97 mph exit velocity) as he connects with power driving to all parts of the field.
10/28/2017 - 2017 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's Futures West
Emanuel is a physical specimen with a 6'3"/210-pound muscular frame who impressed at the BF UA Futures West event. The strength transfers into loud contact at the plate as the ball really jumps off his bat. His swing is simple and balanced, and he is most comfortable driving the ball from gap-to-gap. The power comes from very little effort, and it is easy to envision Emanuel hitting in the middle of a batting order at the next level. Defensively, he moves with ease to the ball and uses arm strength (87 mph) and an overhand release to produce throws that are accurate with excellent carry. Emanuel went 1-3 in the game after a head-turning batting practice. Look for big things in the future from this high-ceiling prospect.
