07/16/2019 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 12-14)
Anthony continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. In the OF, he displays smooth actions. He takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He needs to work to get behind more and play through with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he continues to improve foot quickness. At the plate, power potential has improved through a squared setup. 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. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. On the mound, arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date at 57 mph. Fastball shows a range of 55-57 mph. Breaking ball displays 2/8 shape with loose spin and gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup but needs to develop more movement on pitch. Stock on the mound will continue to develop as he builds 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.
12/28/2018 - National Tryout Plus - Windsor (Madison), WI
Anthony worked out on the mound and in the OF during his last workout with The Factory. On the mound, Anthony has a repeatable delivery, good balance, and he works at a good pace. He separates on time and competes in the zone with his pitches. A looser arm action, more finish, and developing a CB can help mound effectiveness improve. In the OF, Anthony has good pre-pitch actions, he moves well to the ball, and fields cleanly. He has a clean exchange and throws with direction toward his cut off man. Abilities in the OF can get better with added range, fielding further out in front, and by finishing his throws toward his target. At the plate, Anthony has a tall/square set-up, good balance, and a middle of the field approach. He has a still head, a simple stroke, and he makes consistent contact. Hitting grades can spike with better separation, letting the ball travel, and with more lower body.
11/16/2017 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 12-14)
Anthony is a solid LHP/1B who will graduate in 2023. At the plate is where he shows best through an athletic setup. Hands are loose and work through a compact swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he uses his lower half more efficiently. 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. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 49-57 mph. He slows arm speed on his changeup, tipping off pitch to hitters. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and plays the game hard. With 6 years to further develop, Anthony has abilities with time and room to progress his game.
