09/04/2020 - MS All-Region Tournament
Carson improved his 60 yard dash time and his broad jump while participating in the Baseball Factory All-Region Tournament in Tucson. However, where he made the biggest gain from his previous Baseball Factory event was in the arm strength category bumping all the way up to 76mph. He recently made the shift from first base to second base and this move fits him well. He works through the ball with a clean exchange. As his lower half strengthens, he'll have an easier time getting lower to the ground as he currently plays a little high. At the plate, he's simple with his approach; square with his setup, short with his stride and smooth to the ball. We look forward to seeing Carson back out in front of us in 2021 to continue tracking his development.
07/20/2020 - Back to Baseball Program Only - Rosemont (Chicago), IL
Carson continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. At SS, he displays smooth / athletic actions. Feet are active as he works around balls and plays through with his body. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. Range will increase as he continues to improve foot quickness. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a lone toss program. At the plate, hitting / power potential has improved through a squared setup. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently.
