01/17/2020 - 2020 Baseball Factory All-America Pre-Season Rookie Tournament
Brycen got a chance to show off his skillset at the All American Preseason Rookie tournament. At 1B, he displays proper footwork around the bag and is a quality receiver. Glove action is clean but will benefit by presenting more out front. Range will increase as he continues to improve his foot quickness. At the plate, he shows a tall setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent hard contact through a line drive approach. Power will continue to increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 68-71 mph with arm side run/sink. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with early break. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.
