Brandon is a broad, strong RHP/3B who has a promising future on the diamond. On the mound, delivery is sound / repeatable allowing his arm action to work free to the plate. Arm strength is outstanding as indicated by his top velocity of 86 mph. Fastball showed a range of 82-84 mph with sinking action. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with late break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup and shows a feel for pitch with sinking action. Off speed stuff show as quality pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. At 3B, he displays smooth / athletic actions. Feet are aggressive as he attacks balls and plays through well with his body. Hands are soft / sure but will benefit by presenting more out front. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. Throws are accurate with carry across the diamond. At the plate, he continues to shine, displaying well above average with outstanding power potential. Hands are quick (84 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He has strength in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel with power showing best to the pull side. With 2 years to further develop, Brandon has a lot of potential and will get looks from the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities, possibly as a two-way guy.
