David continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities with a tremendous future on the diamond. At the plate, hitting/power potential has improved through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (82 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He works inside the ball and has strength in his swing with gap-to-gap pop. At the event, he was 5 for 12 with a 2B. At 3B, feet are active as he works around ground balls and squares up well. Hands/feet work well together as he presents glove well out front. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.

David is a solid, athletic 3B who has a bright future on the diamond. At 3B, defensive abilities are solid as he displays smooth/clean actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork and plays through with his body. Glove action is clean and presents well out front. He shows off his athletic abilities on his feeds/turns of the double play. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he continues to shine through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (84 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. With 3 years to further develop, David has a lot of potential and will get looks from collegiate coaches as he continues to progress his game.
