07/25/2018 - Under Armour Southwest Championships 17U, powered by Baseball Factory's Team One Luke continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and he is a prospect on the diamond. In the MIF, defensive abilities are at a pro level 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. Hands / feet work well together as he gets rid of the baseball quickly with accuracy and zip (85 mph velocity) on his throws. He shows big play potential. At the plate, hitting abilities are now outstanding with well above average power potential through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (86 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball utilizing all fields and has strength in his swing with gap-to-gap pop. At the event, he was 5 for 11 with a 2B. Mental makeup may be his best tool as he plays the game the right way. Luke has the makings of a special type player and will get looks from the top collegiate coaches with his baseball tools.
