03/08/2020 - College PREP - Fresno, CA Ayden Thissen is a 6'/165 lbs switch-hitting 2B/OF that will graduate in 2020. At 2B, he took a great first step, creating an early angle to get a read on his hop and come get aggressively. His hands played sure and he had a clean exchange to throw. Arm action was clean and he was consistently accurate to throw to his targets with momentum. In the OF, he worked to the ball well with active feet and threw with loose arm action from the high 3/4 slot. He made the routine play with ease and is a strong athlete that has a chance to keep playing the OF at the next level with more live reads (off the bat) creating comfortability. Offensively, he showed similar abilities from either side with good hand/hip coordination and a spray approach. His path was direct to contact and he consistently found the barrel. A little more work with his timing & swing rhythm will enable harder contact and top hand extension from both sides will help keep him in the center of the field. In all - Ayden is a very exciting follow with a lot of upside in this game. We look forward to tracking his growth and progress.
