11/15/2018 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 12-14) Brandon continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a promising future on the diamond. At 1B, he displays proper footwork around the bag and is a quality receiver. Hands are clean but needs to present more out front. Feet are aggressive as he attacks balls but needs to play through more with his body. Range will increase as he continues to improve foot quickness. At the plate, power potential has improved through an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. On the mound, arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date at 67 mph. Fastball showed a range of 66-67 mph with tailing action. Breaking ball displays 2/8 shape with early break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup but throws too hard, resembling fastball. Getting on a long toss program to develop more arm strength will aid in improving abilities on the mound. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.
