David is a young, lefty pitcher who can also play 1B. On the mound, David has a good arm action, he keeps his head on target, and he holds runners on base well. He hides the ball well and competes in the zone. Mound effectiveness can improve if David can avoid flying open, finish off his pitches, and add arm strength. At 1st base, David has good range, he makes the routine plays, and he throws with accuracy to his target. Defense can improve if David can field further out front, sure up his hands, and finish his throws to his target. Offensively, David has a square set-up and tracks the ball well. He has some balance, and can hit well to the opposite field. Hitting can improve if David can improve his load, shorten his swing, and throw his hands more directly to the ball.
