Bryson continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. At 1B, defensive abilities have improved as he displays smooth / fluid actions. He works to square ball up and makes the routine plays. He displays proper footwork around the bag and he is a quality receiver. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. At the plate, hitting / power potential has improved through a squared setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He shows a feel for the barrel and makes consistent hard contact through a level swing path. At the event, he was 4 for 9 with a 3B. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 57-61 mph. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. Getting on a long toss program will help to increase arm strength which will aid in his development on the mound. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable.
