LT continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities at the Omaha event. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now a 7.26 runner. In the OF, he displays smooth fluid actions. He takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. He utilizes his foot quickness in covering a lot of ground. Throws are accurate with carry (89 mph velocity) to his target. At the plate, he shows an open setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Lower half works well through the swing with an aggressive hip turn. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable.
03/05/2023 - National Showcase - Sacramento, CA
LT is a 2025 OF/2B prospect with a scrappy frame at 5'8" 130 pounds. In both the IF and OF, he does a great job pre-pitch of getting his feet in a ready position. In the OF, he showed good range to his glove side and presented firm hands to make all the routine plays. He has a nice, long arm action and makes accurate throws to his cutoff/targets with a quick exchange. In the IF, he has agile range with quick feet. He gets in a nice, low fielding position and displays soft hands when fielding ground balls. He shows off a quick exchange and makes accurate throws to his targets from different arm slots. His backhand impresses as well and he does a great job of following his flips to second. At the plate, he features an open stance with a short, squared stride and load. He has smooth rhythm and has good balance over the center of his body. His hips and hands work direct to the ball and he has fast bat speed. Does a great job of throwing the knob to the baseball and flashed some pop to the pull side with a line drive approach. Works hard to have consistent timing. Overall an impressive, scrappy hitter.
