12/27/2017 - Baseball Factory Winter Classic - Session 2 (Ages 12-14) Christian continues to shine on the diamond with improvements in his baseball abilities. He did show on the mound for the first time at the event. At 2B, defensive abilities have improved as he displays smooth actions. Feet are active as he attacks balls but needs to play through more with his body. Glove action is clean and presents well out front. He moves well laterally with range improving as he improves foot quickness. At the plate, he continues to shine through an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He has strength in his swing and stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. At the event, he was 5 for 7 with a 3B and 3 BB as he shows a strong recognition of the strike zone. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 63-64 mph. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. Control is a plus as he attacks hitters and throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a great personality, is very coachable, and works hard to be the best player he can be.
