Brian continues to shine on the diamond. In the OF, he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind and plays through with momentum to his target. Range is a plus as he utilizes his quick feet well in covering a lot of ground. At the plate, hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. On the mound, delivery is sound / repeatable allowing his arm action to work free to the plate. Arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date, topping out at 77 mph. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with gradual break. He slows arm speed on his changeup, tipping off pitch to hitters. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program.
08/01/2018 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 14-18)
Brian is an athletic and strong 2020 2-way prospect that works hard and made several adjustments throughout the week at Pirate City. In the OF, Brian is on time with his pre-pitch movement, works behind the ball, and makes accurate throws. Continue to anticipate the ball off the bat and improving first step quickness will improve his overall routes to the ball. At the plate, Brian starts in a tall and open stance. He loads his hands backs into the drive position, keeps a quiet head, and stays balanced through contact. He needs to continue to load knee to knee, get his front foot down on time, and create backside rotation. On the bump, Brian gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and has a clean arm action. His fastball sits 73-74 with tail, and he sweeps his curveball. Brian plays the game hard and will continue to improve with experience. We hope to see his progress in the future.
