Caleb continues to progress on the diamond. At 3B, he hustles to come and get the ground ball with athletic actions. He funnels to a quick transfer/exchange with accuracy on his throws. He plays through the ball well and gains ground toward 1B. At the plate, this switch hitter shows similar abilities from both sides. He has an athletic setup with good balance. Swing is level to and through the zone as he connects and hits line-drives. A shorter/more direct swing path with more bat speed will result in increased pop/power at the plate. On the mound, this RHP works through a compact delivery in-line toward the dish. FB still tops out in the upper 60's while breaking ball has 10/4 shape. Effectiveness on his CB will improve with a more consistent release point (staying on top). This young (2019 grad) has skills with still a ton of time to develop his game.

07/20/2014 - California Select Training & Competition (Ages 12-14)
Caleb is a switch-hitting third baseman who will graduate in 2019. Defensively he is athletic, fields out front and works through the ball well. Caleb needs to improve his knowledge of third base responsibility, smooth out actions and take better angles to the ball. From both sides of the plate he displayed a good setup, balance and a short/compact swing. Caleb can improve by standing a little taller, keeping head still and using the entire field. Lots of reps left-handed will help to make him more comfortable as well.
