Angel continues to shine on the diamond. At SS, he displays smooth / fluid actions and shows big play potential in the MIF. Feet are aggressive as he attacks balls and plays through well with his body. Glove action is soft and presents well out front. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. In the OF, he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He attacks and works to get behind, playing through with momentum to his target. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he has athletic/smooth actions with fluid rhythm to load. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side.
