07/10/2023 - National Showcase - Houston, TX Jirius is a SS/RHP prospect who will graduate in 2027. A young/developing player with strength present and plenty of room to add throughout. At SS he works to center the baseball and shows quick/fluid footwork. Works into an athletic fielding position with good glove actions and soft hands out front. Made accurate throws from a high 3/4 arm slot, with a quick release, and an arm velocity up to 81mph. Showed good touch on his DP feeds. On the mound he gathers over the rubber and has level eyes. He gets his chest to his glove and lands square to his target. He attacks hitters with a FB that sits 77-79mph with plus command, a breaking ball with 10/4 shape that he throws for strikes, and a changeup he throws with FB arm speed that has some arm side run. CH was best pitch during his bullpen session. At the plate he hits from a crouched and closed stance. A simple setup to start and takes an aggressive swing. Keeps bat flat in the zone for a long time and made consistent contact. During his round of BP, he hit line drives into both gaps with a bat exit velocity up to 81mph. With 4 years of continued growth and development, we foresee Jirius having a bright future on the baseball field.
