11/10/2011 - Pirate City Select Training - 2011 (Pre HS) Anthony Valentin is a 2016 graduate who plays outfield and also pitches. In the outfield Anthony throws from a high 3/4 arm slot and he is good with following his throws. He uses 2 hands in the field and has a quick exchange, takes good angles to the ball and has good footwork, has an athletic fielding position, and is a go getter in the field. Anthony's best asset is the reads he gets off the bat, this allows him to be very quick and get set up with good range. On the mound Anthony is a left handed pitcher with good balance. He stays in line when releasing the ball and finishes square allowing him to have a sound finish. Needs a better rhythm with his delivery to develop a better tempo that will make him more consistent. At the plate Anthony is a left handed hitter with an athletic set up, a nice load, short and squared stride, and shows good balance. Needs to incorporate his lower half more to get more power and develop some consistency. He makes good contact and has a good approach at the plate. Anthony is a very athletic kid who wants to learn the game. With more reps and time he will become a nice player and will only get stronger with time.
