Beltres works from a quiet set up and has a simple, middle of the field approach at the plate. Utilizing a square stride and activation on the hands, there is timing present and balance generally throughout the stroke. The bat path is direct to the baseball and Anselmo will create more backspin line-drive results by working to get extension through contact with the barrel on plane while increasing fluidity at the plate will help the bat speed to impact. A hard-working player, Anselmo will be able to get the most from his abilities through continued dedication.

Anselmo continues to improve his game and has the type of work ethic coaches like to see. He has soft, sure hands in the infield with a clean exchange and an accurate arm. He is also more comfortable going to his backhand then most young infielders. Improved range and arm strength will add to his defensive prowess. At the plate Anselmo has a contact bat and very good head discipline. He tracks the ball well and sprays line drives to all fields. A shorter, more level path will help him find the barrel with more consistency. Overall, Anselmo is making himself into a player who will help the right program in the future.
