01/21/2019 - College PREP - Mesa (Phoenix), AZ Samuel is a tall, athletic SS/OF who has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed is well above average as indicated by his 60 time of 7.18. At the plate is where he shows best, displaying solid hitting power potential through a squared setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive approach. He shows a feel for the barrel and stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. At SS, feet are active as he attacks balls but needs to play through more with his body. Glove action is soft /clean and presents well out front. In the OF, he displays smooth / clean actions. He utilizes his feet well in tracking down balls through proper routes / angles. He needs to work to get behind balls and play through with momentum to his target. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. With 3 years to further develop, Samuel has potential with time and room to continue to progress his game.
