10/27/2018 - 2018 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's Futures South Slade has one of the loudest tool sets of anyone in the 2020 class. At the UA Baseball Factory Futures South event he registered the following: 101 mph raw arm strength, 95 mph bat exit velocity and a time of 6.75 in the 60! On top of those measurable numbers, Slade has outstanding left-handed raw power. He does damage in the box with a powerful LH stroke that has natural loft and deposited several balls onto the rooftop of a building beyond the RF wall in batting practice. He generates this big power from a pretty simple and efficient LH stroke that allows him to utilize the strength in his 6'2"/212-pound frame. Defensively, Slade is versatile with the ability to play the corners in both the OF and IF. His best profile seems to be in RF, but regardless of the position, this is an impact bat in any lineup.
