Noah is a compact two-way player who graduates in 2020. He shows advanced feel for his pitches on the mound and control each on to both sides of the plate. He works with good tempo on the mound and gets to a consistent balance and release point to repeat his mechanics. He features a fastball at 72mph, an 11-5 curve and a changeup with fading action. At the dish, he deploys a middle approach, staying back on the ball to use all fields. His head stay quiet throughout the swing as he makes consistent contact to put the ball in play. Keeping his hands inside the ball will lead to more squarely hit balls and base hits. At third, he does good prep before the pitch to get in an athletic position, square to the hitter. His hands are presented to field out front as the ball sticks in his glove. Noah is a player we want to continue watching as he develops.

Noah is a strong, well-built 3B/RHP prospect with a projectable baseball body. He shows advanced feel for his pitches on the mound, with the control to spot up each on both sides of the plate. His three-pitch mix of a mid 70's fastball, 11-5 curve and deceptive change presents a challenge to hitters with three distinct speeds. He keeps his eyes on target through his delivery, staying directional to the late and repeating his mechanics well. At the hot corner, he has plenty of range to field hard hit balls to the center of his body, also showing efficient footwork to the backhand. His hands are firm to keep everything in front and he makes consistent, accurate throws. At the dish, he shows a square, athletic setup with a compact stroke, keeping his hands inside the ball to use all fields. His rhythm is smooth in the box with an on-time load and stride to launch through the zone. Working on a direct bat path to the ball will lead to more consistent contact and base hits. Noah is an intriguing, young prospect who we look forward to watching as he continues to develop.
