12/27/2019 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 14-18)
Adrian is an athletic and talented 2-way prospect that was eager to learn. In the OF, Adrian is on time with his prep step, he has a quick first step, and he works behind the ball. He closes the gaps, he makes the routine play, and can make adjustments on a ball mid play. At the plate, Adrian starts in an open stance, he loads his hand back into the drive position, and rotates his lower half. He makes consistent hard contact with a middle approach. On the bump, Adrian pounds the strike zone with his fastball and uses his breaking ball as an out pitch. He keeps his head back over the rubber, he separates on time, and accelerates down hill. He needs to continue to maintain a strong glove side and stay in line toward the plate in his delivery. Adrian will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

06/30/2019 - College PREP - Binghamton, NY
Adrian is a lean, athletic, 2-way player with solid all around skills. In the OF, Adrian has soft hands, fluid feet, and he attacks the ball aggressively. He fields athletically, plays through, and he delivers with accuracy and momentum toward his target. Staying on top of the baseball can help throwing improve. On the mound, Adrian has good balance over the rubber and a loose/free arm circle. He separates his hands on time, has a controlled landing, and throws strikes. More lower body and extension on his pitches can help mound effectiveness improve. Offensively, Adrian has an athletic set-up, good balance, and he uses the middle of the field. He has fast bat speed, makes square contact, and transfers his weight properly. Better use of his lower 1/2 will help solid hitting get even better.
