01/17/2014 - Baseball Factory Spring Training in Arizona (Ages 14-18) Chanan is a solid 3B/RHP with a strong lower half that will graduate in 2015. Currently, he projects best at 3B for the next level. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork as he works to square ground balls up, displaying clean hands as he makes the plays. He moves well laterally, flashing range. For defensive grade to continue to improve, he needs to increase foot quickness and play through balls more while presenting hands more out front. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate he shows an athletic / squared setup with rhythm. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact, has strength, and shows a feel for the barrel with baseball jumping off the bat when centered, mainly to the pull side. For hitting grades to continue to improve, he needs work to keep hands inside the ball and let the ball travel more. Power numbers will improve as he learns to load more and use his lower half. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 63-67 mph with arm side run / sink. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with gradual break. Control is a plus as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock to the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength and develops another off speed pitch. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable. Chanan has abilities with a lot of room to improve.
