Mason is coachable SS/RHP in the class of 2026 out of Sandpoint, ID. At SS, he showed the ability to take good angles to the baseball and field the ball out front in a low fielding position. He works through the ball with a clean exchange and makes good feeds to his targets. At the plate, this RHH uses a square set up with good balance to work a line drive approach with an on plane path. He swings with good intent and makes consistent contact. On the hill, he did a good job of gathering over the rubber and extending through the mitt on release. He worked a 3 pitch mix of fastball (65mph), slider and change up with cut. With 3+ years to further develop, Mason has potential with time and room to progress his game.

Mason is a 2026 SS/RHP. Defensively, he displayed quick feet with good range. He fielded the ball out front and got rid of the ball quickly with the ability to change arm slots. Offensively, he uses a square stance with fluid timing and good bat speed to hit line drives all over the field. On the bump, Mason exhibited solid mechanics with the ability to repeat and throw strikes. He had good break on his off speed and change up seemed to be his out pitch. Overall, Mason displayed very well in Spokane and we believe with growth he will develop into a promising prospect.

Mason continues to show a promising future on the diamond. At 3B, he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork as he works to square ground balls up, presenting hands as he makes the plays. Range will increase as he continues to improve foot quickness. At the plate, he shows a squared setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 50-55 mph. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. Getting on a long toss program to develop more arm strength will aid in improving abilities on the mound. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable.
