07/18/2017 - College PREP - Sauget (St. Louis), IL Lucas is a lean, athletic OF/C who will graduate in 2020. In the OF, he displays smooth / athletic actions. He utilizes his feet well in tracking down balls through proper routes / angles and utilizes two hands well through the fielding process. He works to get behind balls but will benefit by playing through more with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Behind the plate, hands / feet work well together through a clean transfer / exchange in getting rid of the baseball. Pop times show a range of 2.52-2.68 with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Hands are soft and he tracks balls well through the receiving process but needs to improve flexibility. He uses his body well through the blocking process but needs instruction and further develop to improve grade. At the plate he shows a squared setup with rhythm. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He works to stay inside the ball through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. With 3 years to further develop, Lucas has abilities with time and room to progress his game.
