01/11/2015 - National Tryout - San Antonio, TX
Cesar showed only at SS at the event and continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. In the MIF, defensive grade have improved, displaying clean / smooth actions. He moves well laterally, especially to glove side, attacks balls through an aggressive approach, displaying clean hands, and shows off his athletic abilities on the slow roller play. Defensive grade will continue to improve as he presents hands more out front and improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program and work to get rid of the baseball quicker to improve arm grade. At the plate, he has improved his hitting / power grade through an athletic setup and aggressive approach. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path as he makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side. Hitting grade will continue to improve as he works to keep hands inside the ball, utilizing all fields and works to get stride foot down sooner to work on time. Power numbers will continue to improve as he works to use his lower half more efficiently.
