Adrian continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. At the plate, he continues to show as a switch hitter and has improved his power potential from both sides. Hands are loose and work through an aggressive swing path. Lower half works well through the swing and he stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields from both sides of the plate. At the event, he had a great tournament going 4 for 6 with a 2B and HR. At 1B, he displays proper footwork around the bag and is a quality receiver. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. Feet are aggressive as he attacks balls but needs to square up and play through balls more with his body. Range will increase as he continues to improve foot quickness. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable.
