Luke showed on the mound and in the OF for the first time at the event. He continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. At the plate, hitting abilities have improved through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (83 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He works to keep hands inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. In the OF, he displays smooth actions. Feet are aggressive as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He reads balls well off the bat and works to get behind balls but needs to play through with momentum to his target. Range is a plus as he reads balls well off the bat and covers a lot of ground. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 73-74 mph. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with sinking action. Control is solid as he attacks hitters and throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program.

Lukas is a RHP/INF that showed good actions on all sides of the baseball. Offensively, he tracked the ball well with a quiet head, stayed inside the baseball, and was aggressive to attack stuff in the zone. He will improve by letting the ball travel and by adding more barrel accuracy. Defensively, he worked his feet efficiently and had good body control to make plays. He was on-time to field and was sure with the glove to make plays. On the hill, he threw his FB from 73-79, spun a 10/4 CB from 68-71, and threw a sinking CH from 69-73. He was fluid with his actions, repeated his delivery with rhythm, and showed feel for all three pitches. In all - Lukas is a rising sophomore that has a bright future ahead of him as he adds strength and consistency.
