12/20/2022 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at JRTC - Session 1
Perry is a 2024 LHP/1B who showcased his skills during the BF Christmas Camp and Tournament. At 1B, Perry showed good range and soft hands that work out front. He worked to center the baseball and presents a big target at first base. He fields from an athletic/square fielding position with a low funnel. He throws from a high 3/4 arm slot, with a quick arm stroke, and an arm velocity up to 83mph. At the plate, he hits from a tall and even stance with high hands. Activates his hands, with smooth rhythm to swing, and showed good barrel control. An on-plane swing enables him to hit balls into both gaps with a bat exit velocity up to 81mph during BP. During the games, he showed good plate discipline and proved to be a tough out. A left-handed pitcher, he works exclusively from the stretch. He has good feel for pitching and competes on the mound. He gathers over the rubber and works with good direction down the mound. He attacks hitters with a FB that topped out at 75mph, a 1/7 shaped breaking ball, and a knuckle ball. He does a good job of varying his looks and controlling the run game. In 3 innings of work, he struck out 4 batters. Perry is hard working 2-way player who has the potential to further build upon his skills on the field.

Working to sink his hips more will allow for hop adjustment. On the mound, he operates with a 3-pitch mix from a high ¾ slot. His FB topped at 76 with arm side run. His CB sat 57-9 with 2-8 shape and was located well. His knuckle sat 57-8 and was deceptive. At the plate, he has loose hands and gains full hip rotation. Is athletic in his base and separates well.
