04/29/2012 - College PREP - Adrian (Detroit), MI Chase is a shortstop with a strong lower half that will graduate in 2013. Defensively, he has an aggressive approach to the ball, takes proper angles to both sides and secures the catch. He has a low approach to the ball keeping the ball in front and has a quick and clean exchange to throw. He makes consistent throws to his target giving proper feeds on the double play and showing solid footwork around the bag. Arm strength, playing through the ball and staying low to throw will improve him defensively. At the plate, he shows a solid load, short stride and balance throughout the swing. He is a contact type hitter that shows the ability to use the middle of the field. Bat speed, a shorter swing path and some pre-pitch rhythm will help Chase develop his offensive game. Overall strength and speed will round him out as a player.
