09/26/2018 - Arizona Freshman Fall Classic Sam is a lean, athletic RHP/OF who has a tremendous future on the diamond. At the plate is where he shows best, displaying well above average hitting / power potential through an open setup. Hands are quick (82 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields and shows a feel for the barrel, flashing gap-to-gap pop. In the OF, he displays fluid / athletic actions. Feet are aggressive as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls but needs to play through more with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 76-78 mph. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. Control is solid as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to develop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. With 3 years to further develop, Sam has the makings of a special type player and will get looks from the collegiate coaches as he continues to progress his game.
