He replaces his feet on double plays, throws from multiple arm slots, and makes accurate throws. At the plate, Anzel starts in a tall and closed stance. He has a quiet head and makes consistent pull contact. Continuing to rotate his back leg during the swing and staying balanced at contact will improve his ability to hit the ball to all fields. On the bump, Anzel features three pitches and tries to command the bottom part of the plate. His fastball tops out at 62 mph, his curveball has an early break, and he chokes the changeup. He keeps his eyes on his target and stays directional toward the plate. Anzel will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
