Zach is a 3B/RHP prospect who will graduate in 2020. At the plate Zach shows explosiveness through the hips and hands. He hits the ball with force and has the ability to drive to all fields. In the field, Zach works through the ball getting momentum towards first base on his throw. If Zach works on being more athletic in the field, he could have greater success in reaching baseballs and getting the ball out sooner. On the mound Zach possesses a nice presence. This tall prospect finishes through his fastball and gains some tail at the end pumping in a range of 80-82 mph. He has a nice feel for control of the baseball on the mound. With his change-up, he tends to slow his arm down in the motion of the pitch as it gets over between 69-72 mph. He should finish the pitch more with a more natural arm delivery. With his slurve, he has a nice break to it in a nearly 12-6 ball motion over the plate which ranges between 62-65 mph. Zach is going to make a strong contribution to a college team after high school on both the mound and at the dish.
02/23/2019 - Mid Atlantic Regional Hitting Weekend (Ages 14-18)
Zachary is an athletic and talented prospect that was eager to learn and made several adjustments throughout the weekend. At the plate, Zachary starts in a squared stance, has a simple load, and gets his front foot down on time. He has explosive bat speed and shows pull side pop. He needs to continue to attack the inside part of the ball, create backside drive with his lower half, and stay balanced throughout the swing. Continuing to back the ball up in the strike zone will improve his ability to hit the ball to all fields. Zachary will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in Philadelphia this spring.
