08/27/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Glendale (Milwaukee), WI Sawyer is a young (2022 grad) and talented 2-way player as a LHP/1B. On the mound, this lefty has a 3-pitch mix coming from a high 3/4 arm slot. He works to a tall/controlled balance point, has on-time separation and keeps his eyes on the target. FB ranges from 60-61 mph as he works it to both sides of the zone. Slider has 1/7 shape with early action. Defensively at 1B, he shows active prep footwork and is ready to move right and left. He tracks GB's into his mitt and gathers well. He moves well around the 1B and adjusts his feet to throws up and down the line. With the bat, this lefty has an athletic setup while getting good hand separation on his load. Swing is direct as he barrels the ball up and drives the middle of the field. Continuing to work on the following will help to develop his overall skill-set.
