09/27/2017 - Arizona Freshman Fall Classic Hayes continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a promising future on the diamond. At the plate, hitting/power potential has improved through a tall setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach. In the OF, he displays smooth/athletic actions. He reads balls well off the bat and utilizes his athletic feet well in tracking down balls through proper routes/angles. Range will increase as he continues to improve foot quickness. He works behind the baseball and plays through with momentum to his target and gets rid of the baseball quickly. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 68-73 mph with tailing action. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with tailing action but needs to develop a consistent release point. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best he can be.
