04/10/2016 - Interactive Video Program - Plano (DFW), TX Peyton is a young (2022 grad) R/R 2-way player as a 1B/RHP who has a solid all-around skill-set. Defensively at 1B, he shows active prep footwork and hustles into a square fielding position behind the GB. He tracks the ball into his mitt, gathers well and gives good feeds on the 3-6-3 DP. Offensively, this righty stands in well and gets good hand separation on his load. He takes an aggressive hack, whips the barrel and has pop to his pull-side. On the mound, Peyton has a 3-pitch mix coming from a high 3/4 arm slot and clean/free arm action. He pounds the zone and throws strikes consistently. FB tops out at 61 mph while showing slight run. Breaking ball has 11/5 shape while changeup shows some run - complimenting his FB well. He will challenge hitters and compete. Continuing to work on the following will help to improve skills on the diamond.
