Cade showed his consistent play ability in his most recent Baseball Factory outing. Defensively, he worked as both a catcher and shortstop with sure hands and efficient footwork. He is vocal player that works hard and makes plays. Quickening his transfer and shortening his release time - behind the dish - will decrease pop times and make him more effective. At short, he took good angles, but could become more aggressive to come get. Offensively, he hit from both sides of the dish with good contact ability and an oppo approach. He gets his hands activated and is strong in his launch - but could work on his timing to improve barrel frequency. Overall - Cade continues to show discipline in making adjustments and improvements from outing to outing.
