12/02/2012 - College PREP - McCook (Chicago), IL Brendan is a left-handed hitting 3B who shows some strength offensively. He has some bar when he's loaded up but there is some rhythm to his setup. He is strong and has slightly above average power. Because of the bar in his load, his swing path is long and he tends to roll over pitches. Would also like to see him loosen up his grip. At 3B he shows an accurate arm and makes the routine play. His actions are a bit methodical. Tends to be on his heels and doesn't play through the ball consistently. Would like to see him soften up his hands as well. Improvements in overall athleticism should free him up to be more athletic with the glove in the INF.
