Cooper continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and is a top prospect on the diamond. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now a 7.00 runner. In the OF, defensive abilities have improved as he displays smooth / clean actions. Feet are active as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Glove action is soft / sure and presents well out front. Range is a plus as he reads balls well off the bat and utilizes his quick feet in covering a lot of ground. Hands / feet work well together as he gets rid of the baseball quickly with accuracy and zip on his throws but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, hitting abilities are now outstanding through a crouched setup. Hands are quick (92 mph exit velocity) and works through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. At the event, he was 4 for 10.
