11/20/2016 - College PREP - Houston, TX Tristan is a very talented (6'2"/165) 2-way player (LHP/OF) who can make things happen in a variety of ways on the diamond. On the mound, this lefty has an effective 3-pitch arsenal coming from a 3/4 arm slot. He maintains fluid tempo as he works to a tall balance point keeping his shoulders in-line. FB cracks the mitt at 81 mph as he works the ball in and out. Breaking ball has 2/8 shape with late break. Changeup compliments FB well as he throws it with FB arm speed, helping to create deception. In the OF, Karels has active prep and covers ground with speed. He works behind the ball and is aggressive. He gains ground and fires strong throws (90 mph) on a line - runners will not want to test his arm. At the plate, this lefty displays an athletic setup with fluid rhythm to load. Hands are quick through a level path as he connects and creates extension through contact. The ball jumps off of his barrel as he has pop to his pull side (exit velocity = 84 mph). Tristan is a solid prospect who has a bright future in the game.
