12/27/2020 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Pittsburgh, PA Tate is a thick LHP1B who has a promising future on the diamond. At 1B, he shows smooth / fluid actions. He displays proper footwork around the bag and is a quality receiver. Hands are clean but needs to present more out front. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. At the plate he continues to shine through an athletic, open setup. Hands are quick (82 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. On the mound, delivery is sound / repeatable as he shows good tempo through a strong balance point, allowing his arm action to work quick and free to the plate. Fastball shows a range of 69-70 mph with tailing action. Breaking ball displays 1/7 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with arm side run. With 4 years to further develop, Chris has potential with time and room to progress his game.
