08/25/2019 - National Tryout Plus - Lebanon (Nashville), TN Abdiel continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a promising future on the diamond. He did show in the OF for the first time at the event. At 2B, defensive abilities have improved as he displays smooth actions. Feet are aggressive as he attacks balls and plays through well with his body. Hands are soft / sure and presents well out front. In the OF, defensive abilities are well above average as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Range is a plus as reads balls well off the bat and utilizes his quick feet well in covering a lot of ground. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he continues to show as a switch hitter with similar abilities from both sides. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He works to keep hands inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach.
