01/12/2018 - Baseball Factory Spring Training at Historic Dodgertown
Caleb is a hardworking player who is very coachable and has a great attitude. At 3B, he displays smooth / clean actions. Hands are clean and present well out front. Feet are aggressive as he attacks balls but will benefit by playing through with his body. Range will increase as he continues to improve foot quickness. At the plate, he shows a squared setup and an aggressive approach. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays on plane and makes consistent contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 47-51 mph. He maintains arm speed on his changeup but needs to develop more movement on pitch. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program.

12/09/2017 - Accelerated Hitting Weekend PHS- Columbia, MD
Caleb is a very hard working prospect and made several adjustments during the Hitting Accelerated Training weekend. At the plate, Caleb has an athletic stance and shows good tempo. He loads his hands back into the drive position and uses his lower half. Continuing to get the front foot down early will allow Caleb to identify pitches. He needs continue to be aggressive on the fastball and attack the inside part of the ball. Attacking the inside part of the ball will keep his barrel on plane and create extension through contact. Caleb will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
