04/29/2012 - College PREP - Adrian (Detroit), MI Chris is a tall and lanky first baseman that will graduate in 2012. Defensively, he shows good pre-pitch preparation, he tracks the ball well to the glove and he using two hands to secure the catch. He has a clean exchange to throw and makes consistent throws to his target. He needs a wider base to allow him to get lower to the ground so that he can field out front which will soften his hands. At the plate, he shows a square stance with a decent load and a quiet head. He has the ability to hit the ball to all fields. A few areas to work on are a shorter stride which will allow him to get better use of his lower half and leveling out his swing path. Keeping his hands inside the ball will help him make more consistent contact. Increased strength and speed will continue to help Chris improve his game.
