03/01/2020 - College PREP - Wilson, NC Billy Drayton JR. is a 6'1/210 lbs switch hitting 3B/RHP that will graduate in 2023. Defensively at 3B, he moved with active & efficient footwork to get his body into a square fielding position to make plays. His hands were soft as he presented the glove in front and threw with accuracy across the diamond. Agility drills to quicken his feet and a more aggressive approach to come get ground-balls will enable continued success at the hot corner, when the game speeds up. Offensively, he currently shows best from the right side, but has the ability to deliver a level barrel from each side with a majority pull-side tendency. Speeding up his bat with a more direct path and driving his lower-half backside into a firm front-side will create the torque & leverage necessary to utilize his size. On the mound, Billy threw a good mix of pitches with varying speeds - 68-71 FB, 52-56 CB, and 55-56 CH - from the high 3/4 arm slot. His delivery tempo was good and he had good direction staying in-line to the plate. Keeping his eyes on the target and finishing with his chest over his front knee will increase strike volume and overall efficiency. In all - Billy has a mixed array of ability and we look forward to continue tracking his growth from event to event.
