01/17/2014 - Baseball Factory Spring Training at the Yankees Training Complex (Ages 12-14) Avery is a very talented young athletic player who is very positive and affects his teammates in a very good way. In the outfield, Avery works to and through the ball nicely, has good arm strength, and makes plays consistently. He can improve his angles to the ball and focus on making sure his first step is back to prevent balls from falling behind him. At the plate, Avery is an excellent hitter who is smart and confident in his plate approach. He has great bat speed, good power and tracks the ball well out of the pitcher's hand. He needs to work to avoid pulling his head off and extending too early which results in weak fly balls. Avery has a very bright future.
