10/04/2017 - Arizona Sophomore Fall Classic
Skyler is a talented 2-way (2B/RHP) prospect who showed well during his time in Arizona. He is a coachable player who takes instruction well. Defensively, this middle infielder can pick it. He has active prep, work around the ball from right to left and stays low/athletic through fielding the ball. He reads the hops and funnels smoothly. Lateral range is a plus as he can make the tough plays to his right and left with ease. At the plate, this RHH has an athletic setup with good balance. He gets his hands loaded, fires the barrel to and through the zone and swings against a firm front side, engaging his lower 1/2. Hands are quick as he is short & direct to the ball, hitting line-drives. Continuing to create extension through contact will help to tap into more power potential. On the bump, Skyler throws strikes and competes. FB now tops out at 79 mph as he fills up the zone with strikes. Changeup has some sinking action as he works to keep it down in the zone. Continuing on a long toss program will aid in developing more arm strength. Only a 2020 grad, Skyler has the tools that will make an impact on the diamond.
