Conner Lane is a 2024 SS/RHP. Developing slender build that stands to significantly improve as he progresses. Primary SS, shows softness to his hands and has good fluidity through his fielding motion. Flashes solid accuracy on throws across the diamond. On the mound, has a longer arm action from a ¾ arm slot. Mixes in an 11-to-5 shaped curveball with good depth and bite as well as a straight changeup with arm side run. Right-handed hitter, uses an upright and open stance. Flat barrel plane through the zone who rotates well to balls on the inner half. Four years of continued growth and development will bode well for his career at the next level.

Conner is a thin, 2-way player who pitches and plays SS. On the mound, Conner has good balance, a clean arm action, and he separates his hands on time. He gets good extension on his pitches, lands with good direction, and he throws strikes. At SS, Conner has active feet, he makes plays consistently, and his exchange is clean with an accurate arm across the diamond. Offensively, Conner has a tall stance, a square stride, and he has good feel for the barrel. He squares the ball up well and taps into his lower 1/2. Overall skills can get even better with work on the following.
1. Lower body
2. Arm strength
2. Shorten swing
