10/19/2019 - Mid Atlantic Regional Pitching/Catching & Offensive Skills Combined Weekend (Ages 12-14)
Charles is a coachable SS/RHP prospect who worked hard on his skills during the Accelerated Training Weekend. On the mound, Charles shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 39mph. Breaking ball sits from 32-33mph. Changeup sits from 34-35mph. Gathering to a balance point over the rubber can help Charles improve as a pitcher. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a square stance and works to barrel up the baseball. Charles can improve as a hitter by working a smoother load into his swing. With six more years to develop, Charles has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.

Charles is a young, 2-way player who plays SS and RHP. Defensively, Charles gets in a good ready position, and shows playable hands and feet. He gives good effort to the ball, keeps it in front, and has a clean exchange from glove to hand. On the mound, Charles has some balance over the rubber and a deceptive arm action. He keeps a still head on target, gets good extension on his pitches, and lands with good direction toward the plate. Offensively, Charles has a tall stance, he tracks well, and works the middle of the field. He swings with effort and puts the bat on the ball. If Charles can work on the following, overall skills can further improve.
1. Fielding position
2. Loosen arm action
3. Arm strength
2. Bat speed
3. Barrel accuracy
