Cole is an athletic and strong 2021 utility player. At the hot corner, Cole has an efficient prep step, creates angles to the ball, and is aggressive on slow rollers. He presents a low/early glove and plays through his backhand. Continuing to practice game like throws in his throwing program will increase his ability to throw from multiple arm angles and on the run. At the plate, Cole starts in a tall stance and loads his hands back into the drive position. He has good rhythm in his hands, stays back on the ball, and maintains balance through contact. Continuing to attack the inside part of the ball and being aggressive on the fastball will allow him to keep a middle approach. On the bump, Cole gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and extends thru his delivery. He has a simple delivery and throws all three pitches down in the zone. Being coachable and learning how to make adjustments through hard work will elevate Coles game to the next level. He will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
