11/07/2013 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City In Braden's most recent Factory outing, he showed as both a first basemen and a pitcher. At first, he showed some knowledge of work around the bag and focused his attention to his ready position footwork. With added speed/agility, Braden will enable his feet to work more fluidly at first, causing cleaner bag work. Offensively, he has good hitter presence - is a big strong guy that gets the bat to the ball. Maintaining a soft stride will enable more head control and balance, leading to more consistent contact. On the bump, he throws three pitches with his BB being his most effective pitch. Adding feel to his change-up will make him more of a threat on the hill. In all - Braden is a solid/tall built young player that has a couple more years to refine his playing ability in preparation for the next level.
