Conner showed nice improvements in his all around game during his last workout in Harrisburg. He lowered 60 time to 8.06, raised velocity to 75 MPH, and hitting numbers spiked. On the mound, Conner has good balance, a rhythmic delivery, and on-time hand separation. He has a clean arm circle, a controlled landing toward home plate, and he gets good extension on his pitches. More lower body, and working on a downhill plane will improve mound effectiveness. At SS, Conner has playable hands and feet, and he moves around the ball well. He works from the ground-up, his exchange is clean, and he throws with accuracy to his target. Conner will need to quicken his exchange, follow throws, and add arm strength for defensive grades to get better. Offensively, Conner has a tall stance, a good load, and solid bat speed. He works the ball gap to gap, he stays on top of the ball, and he can hit to all fields. Work on timing, rhythm, and more lower 1/2 will spike hitting numbers.
