Mark continues to shine on the diamond with improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now 7.00 runner. In the OF, defensive abilities are solid as he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are active as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He needs to work to get behind balls more and play through with momentum to his target. Glove action is clean and presents well out front. He moves well laterally and utilizes his foot quickness in covering a lot of ground. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows an athletic setup. Hands are quick (81 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Lower half works well as he transfers weight front the backside into a firm front.

Mark is a 1B/RHP in the graduating class of 2023. At the plate, he starts in an even and athletic set up with comfortable hands. Does a good job taking a simple load that activates his lower 1/2. Shows quiet actions with centered balance. His lower 1/2 works efficiently helping him get his barrel on plane early. Also shows an advanced approach with a line drive focus. On the mound, he gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He picks up target early and attacks the strike zone. Works off of a FB that sat 68-72mph with some run, a 1/7 shaped breaking ball, and a changeup he throws with FB arm speed and same running action as FB. FB was his best pitch during his bullpen. Mark is a good prospect that we expect to continue to develop with maturity.
