07/18/2012 - National Tryout - Sanford (Orlando), FL
Christian showed improvement in his game during his last workout in Orlando. Defensively, Christian has decent pre-pitch actions, he fields out in front, and he makes the routine plays. He can throw from different arm angles and has some accuracy to his target. Offensively, Christian has good balance, some strength in his swing, and he hits hard to the pull side. More lower 1/2, not spinning off the ball, and added barrel accuracy can help hitting improve.
