01/18/2019 - Baseball Factory Spring Training in Arizona (Ages 12-14) Carson is an athletic and talented 2024 2-way prospect that was eager to learn. In the OF, Carson makes the routine play and makes accurate throws to the plate. He needs to continue to be on time with his prep step, improve his reaction off the bat, and work behind the ball. At the plate, Carson starts in a squared stance, gets his front foot down on time, and makes consistent contact to all fields. He needs to continue to load his hands back into the drive position, attack the inside part of the ball, and create backside drive. Keeping his head down at contact and hitting off a firm front side will prevent him from opening up his front shoulder as well. On the bump, Carson shows confidence, he attacks hitters in, and throws strikes. His fastball has occasional run and he cuts his changeup. He gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and has a good stride length. He needs continue to ride his back leg toward the plate and work north to south in his delivery. Carson will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
