05/21/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Redwood City (San Francisco/San Jose), CA Cristian is a 2B/OF who will graduate in 2021. Defensively at 2B, he takes a prep step and tries to work into a square fielding position. He comes and gets the GB, sets his feet and fires throws on line to his target. In the OF, he hustles hard laterally as he tracks down fly balls. He takes efficient routes to his glove side and plays through the GB towards his target. With the bat, Cristian shows a quiet setup and gets back into a smooth load. He takes hard cuts through the zone as he drives pitches with pop to his pull side. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.
Infield 1. Quicker footwork 2. Work from ground up 3. Develop soft hands Outfield 1. Quicker 1st step 2. Get behind the fly ball 3. Arm strength (long toss) Offense 1. Improve bat speed 2. Lower 1/2 drive 3. Level out swing path
