12/27/2013 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City Phillips is an outstanding, very respectful young man whom plays the game hard with a positive attitude. At the plate his hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a level swing path. He shows a feel for the barrel with the baseball jumping off the bat when centered. He needs to work on pitch recognition and timing which will come with more experience. Behind the plate, pop times were in the 2.4 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Working on his arm will be a key for Brenden. Receiving / blocking skills show as playable tools at the next level as he continues to develop.
