07/29/2013 - Under Armour Southwest Championships, powered by Baseball Factory's Team One Austin continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. He utilizes his athletic feet well in working in line through a clean transfer / exchange as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Pop times have improved as he threw his lowest time to date at 2.02. Throws are accurate, flashing carry but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. Receiving / blocking skills show as quality tools that will play well at the next level. At the plate, hitting have improved, now showing well above average through an athletic setup. Hands are quick, generating bat speed through a level swing path. He shows a feel for the barrel with baseball exploding off the bat when centered. For hitting grades to continue to improve, he needs to work to stay inside the ball to utilize all fields. Mental makeup is a plus as he is a hard worker, coachable, and shows good leadership traits.
