08/16/2020 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Salem (Roanoke), VA Ashton is a lean SS/RHP who has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed is solid as indicated by his 60 time of 7.39. At SS, he displays smooth / athletic actions. Feet are active as he works around balls and plays through with his body. Glove action is clean and presents well out front. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. At the plate, he continues to shine through an open setup. Hands are quick (82 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. On the mound, he shows a sound, repeatable delivery that allows his arm action to work free to the plate. Fastball showed a range of 68-72 mph on a downhill plane. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with arm side run and sink but throws too hard, resembling fastball. Control is outstanding as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength on the mound. With 4 years to further develop, Ashton has potential with time and room to progress his game.
