07/31/2013 - Baseball Factory Pro Select Training at Vero Beach (Ages 14-18) Cory is an athletic SS that will graduate in 2014. In the IF, feet are active as he works to square ball balls up, displaying clean hands. He needs to play through balls more while presenting hands more out front, and increase foot quickness to continue to improve defensive grade. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate is where Baker shows best through an open / balanced setup. Hands are loose and work through a short / level swing path. He makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side. For hitting grades to continue to improve, he needs to work to stay inside the ball, utilizing all fields. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more and adds overall body strength. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 70-72 mph on a downhill plane. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup, showing a straight change. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength and works to throw more strikes with all his pitches. Mental makeup is a plus as he is a hard worker and is coachable. Cory has abilities with a lot of room to improve.
