07/01/2013 - College PREP - Charleston, WV Branden is a solid 3B who will graduate in 2015. He has an accurate arm with short action. He is sure handed and demonstrates a quick clean exchange. He is agile in the field and shows a low fielding position. He has a tendency to stab at his backhand, smoothing out that action will help him increase his range in the infield. At the plate Newcome has a level swing path and good lower half rotation. His hands drift away from his body causing his swing to be long at times. This affects the consistency of his contact. There is more power in his hands and making some small adjustments should help him become a more complete hitter.
