We last saw Mason in September 2020 and in three short months, he has improved markedly. Raw arm strength up from 73mph to 80mph, broad jump up from 6'11" to 7'9" and exit velocity up from 71mph to 77mph off of the tee. Where Mason shines the most is on the defensive front. He shows pre-pitch movement which allows him to have an explosive first step and his exchange from glove to hand is quick and clean. At the plate, he gets extension which allows for a solid finish. On the mound, he shows a compact/aggressive push towards home plate and he keeps the ball down in the zone. This 2024 grad is one to watch.

Mason is a 2B/RHP prospect who showcased his skills at the All-Region Tournament. In the field, Mason shows quick footwork and takes good angles to the ball. He gets into an athletic position and fields the ball out in front with soft hands. He has a clean exchange and consistently makes on-line throws to his target. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a tall stance with center balance. He is smooth getting into his load and drives through well with his lower half. He generates fast bat speed through the zone, producing solid contact to his pull side. On the mound, Mason gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He works with a loose arm and stays inline toward the plate. Mason shows a two pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 73mph with tailing action. Breaking ball sits at 63mph with 10-4 break. With four more years to develop, Mason has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
