11/08/2018 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition in Arizona (Ages 14-18) Ashton continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. Behind the plate, pop times have improved as he threw his lowest time to date at 2.70 with accuracy on his throws. Feet are active working in line through a clean transfer / exchange. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and works to get rid of the baseball quicker. Glove action is soft as he sticks balls well in the zone but will benefit by presenting a lower target. He uses his body well through the blocking process but needs to get body down sooner. At the plate, hitting abilities have improved through a squared / athletic setup. Hands are strong and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact with power showing best to the pull side through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable, works hard to be the best player he can be, and plays with a lot of energy.
