04/29/2012 - College PREP - Adrian (Detroit), MI Billy is a thick two-way player that will graduate in 2013. Behind the plate, he shows quick feet, gains ground towards his target, and is in-line with his throws to second. He has a quick and clean release making consistent throws in the 2.06-2.25 pop range. He anticipates well to block, he shows a soft chest, and beats the ball to the spot. He needs to get a wider base, show his target at all times, and get to his feet quicker after blocking to improve his catching abilities. At 3B, he shows good pre-pitch preparation, he has active feet to the ball, and takes good angles. He again shows sure hands, a clean exchange, and makes accurate throws to his target. Overall arm strength and finishing through the ball while throwing will help him shorten the length of the throw to first. At the plate, he has an open stance, solid load, and good balance. He shows fast bat speed getting good use out of his lower half and showing gap-to-gap power. He needs to work on getting a better hand separation and be more consistent in keeping his hands inside the baseball to keep from rolling over. Billy is a solid player and needs to continue to build speed and arm strength.
