01/18/2013 - Arizona National Spring Training Chris is a young (2016 graduate) OF that always shows effort and energy. In the field Chris moves athletically covering ground with good angles, and moves thru the ball well. He catches the ball cleanly with playable footwork in a low, square fielding position. Chris could get his glove down sooner in his fielding position. Chris throws from a high 3/4 arm slot with a short, restricted arm action. By lengthening and loosening his arm mechanics and getting on a consistent long toss program Chris could improve his arm strength and accuracy. At the plate Chris is a grinder making solid contact consistently. He starts with a closed setup and square stride. His load is rushed and down. Chris needs to loosen up, adding rhythm a smoother load to his mechanics quieting his bat. As a 2016 graduate Chris has a lot of time to improve. With his high baseball IQ and strong work ethic Chris should continue to develop in the future.
