11/11/2018 - College PREP - North Charleston, SC Austin is a lean, athletic 2B who has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed is above average as indicated by his 60 time of 7.24. At 2B, defensive abilities are solid as he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are aggressive as he attacks ground 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 ground. He shows off his athletic abilities on his feeds / turn of the double play. Throws are accurate, flashing carry but he will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. 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 shows a feel for the barrel and has strength in his swing with power showing best to the pull side. Austin has potential with time and room to progress his game.
