12/27/2015 - Under Armour Baseball Factory Recruiting Classic Vidal is a 2018 RHP/OF that showed potential at the Recruiting Classic. On the mound, the right-hander showed a three pitch mix from a 3/4 arm slot displaying good arm action to go along with a delivery that features a proper pivot off the back foot with quality hip turn and glove tuck. The landing is square and controlled with full rotation to the target. Driving further and more aggressively to the target will allow Brandon greater extension on the release and add more life and action. Vidal's fastball-curveball mix are the top two pitches, with the breaking ball showing 11-5 shape. The change up is still developing but does show signs of sinking action with fastball arm speed. Defensively in the OF, Brandon showed efficient footwork and good body control as he attacked to charge balls. A good first step allows Vidal to work around the ball properly and development of a crow hop will add even more carry to presently accurate throws. At the plate, Vidal handles the ball down in the zone well and utilizes an approach that allows him to hit balls hard up the middle. There is bat speed present that will improve with better usage of the hips by avoiding drift in the box and being more explosive with proper timing. There is balance throughout Brandon's stroke and extension comes through the baseball in to a high finish. With years ahead to improve, Vidal's stock as a two-way player will continue to rise.
