01/13/2017 - Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament Max continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities with a promising future on the diamond. He did show on the mound for the first time at the event. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date at 7.40. Defensive abilities at 3B have improved as he displays smooth / clean actions. He works around balls and plays through with his body. Glove action is soft / sure but will benefit by presenting more out front. At the plate, he continues to shine through an athletic setup. Hands are quick, generating bat speed and whip through the zone. He has strength in his swing with power showing best to the pull side. Power will continue to increase as he works to increase his lower half more efficiently. On the bump, he displays a sound / repeatable delivery, working in line and on time allowing his arm to work loose / free to the plate. Fastball showed a range of 80-83 mph with arm side run. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with late / sharp break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup, showing a feel and is deceptive. Off speed stuff show potential as being quality pitches. Control is well above average as he attacks hitters and throws strikes with all his pitches. He shows good composure and competes on the mound. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program.
