Patrick showed athleticism and the ability to play multiple positions. Currently he projects well on the mound showing confidence and the ability to control the game. Coyne has a solid 3 pitch mix with good cut to his FB that ranges between 75-80MPH. His delivery is balanced through out with a clean glove side. He can continue to focus on making sure he finishes his pitches to make sure he locates lower in the zone. Defensively, Coyne works from right to left with good momentum on his throws. His hands are sure but he tends to present his glove late and deep. Working on setting up earlier will help with this. Offensively, Patrick has quick hands and feel for the barrel.

Overall, Patrick has shown that he is a special player and will continue to improve as he physically matures through high school.
