03/19/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Monterey Park (Los Angeles), CA Armando is an athletic OF/RHP who will graduate in 2021. In the OF, he hustles and works hard to get into position behind the fly-ball. He reads the ball well off the bat and makes accurate throws to his target. On the mound, this righty delivers from a 3/4 arm slot with good rhythm and tempo. He throws a 3-pitch mix (FB,KN,CH) with his CH being his best pitch. With the bat, Armando has a smooth rhythm to load with a quiet head. He swings a level bat path as he drives pitches on a line to all parts of the field. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.
Defense 1. Get behind on fly balls 2. Quick 1st step 3. Quicker exchange to throw Pitching 1. Keep eyes on target early 2. Finish 3. Arm strength (long toss) Offense 1. Improve bat speed 2. Stay level 3. Lower 1/2 drive
