09/29/2019 - College PREP - Sanford (Orlando), FL Russell is tall, lean 1B/LHP who will graduate in 2023. In the field, he shows efficient footwork and fields in a square position. He throws from a 3/4 angle and keeps his throws accurate and on-line to his target. He can improve defensively by presenting his hands lower to the ball. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. At the plate, this LHH sets up in an athletic stance and takes a short stride. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. On the mound, he gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He works with a clean arm and extends through his release. He shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 68 mph. Breaking ball sits from 52-53 mph with 2/8 break. Changeup sits from 62-63 mph as he maintains arm speed. Long tossing to build up his arm strength can help him improve as a pitcher. Overall, Russell has the potential to further progress his skills on the field.
