11/17/2019 - College PREP - Germantown (Memphis), TN Bladen is an athletic and talented 2022 2-way prospect. In the OF, Bladen is on time with his prep step, he works behind the ball, and makes accurate throws. He plays through ground balls and makes the routine play. At the plate, Bladen starts in a tall stance and loads his hands back into the drive position. He attacks the inside part of the ball, he has a middle approach, and shows power to the pull side. On the bump, Bladen gathers over the rubber, he separates on time, and has a proper stride length. He finds a balance point and has good tempo in his delivery. Bladen will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
