01/17/2014 - Baseball Factory Spring Training at Pirate City Dante is a lean OF/C that will graduate in 2015. Currently, he projects best in the OF for the next level. Foot speed is solid as indicated by his 7.34 60 time. He utilizes his quick, athletic feet well in tracking down balls through proper routes / angles. Defensive grade will continue to improve as he learns to read balls better off the bat and work to get behind more to play through with momentum to his target. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program and work to get rid of the baseball quicker. Behind the plate, he shows a lot of energy and good leadership but needs a lot of instruction to continue to develop skills. At the plate, he shows a squared / balanced setup. Hands are quick and work through level swing path. He has strength in his swing and makes consistent contact. Hitting grades will continue to improve as he works to get stride foot down sooner to work on time. At the event, he was 3 for 6. Mental makeup is a plus as he plays with a lot of energy and is very coachable. Dante has abilities with a lot of room to improve.
