04/15/2017 - College PREP - Hattiesburg, MS Malik is an athletic 3B/RHP who will graduate in 2019. In the field, Malik takes good angles to his glove side and gets into an athletic position to field the ball. He throws with a long arm action from a high 3/4 angle and keeps his throws accurate and on-line to his target. Malik can improve defensively by fielding the ball out in front of his body and by quickening his exchange to throw. At the plate, this RHH sets up in an open stance and takes a short stride to the ball. He gets into his load well and takes a direct swing path with decent bat speed, producing consistent contact and line drives. Malik can improve as a hitter by widening his stance and by using his lower half more. On the mound, Malik shows a repeatable delivery and shows control of his pitches. He has a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 70mph. Breaking ball sits from 57-59mph with 10-4 break. Changeup ranges from 61-63mph as he throws with fastball arm speed. Malik can improve as a pitcher by finishing more with his chest over his front knee. With two years to further develop, Malik has the time and potential to progress his game.
