David continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. At the plate, hitting / power potential has improved through an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He works inside the ball through a line drive approach. At SS, defensive abilities have improved as he displays smooth / fluid actions. 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 continues to improve 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.
