12/27/2019 - Baseball Factory Winter Classic (Ages 12-14) Dayton continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a promising future on the diamond. He did show on the mound for the first time at the event. At SS, defensive abilities have improved as he displays smooth / athletic actions. Feet are active and plays through balls with his body. Glove action is soft sure and presents well out front. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Hands / feet work well together as he gets rid of the baseball quickly with accuracy and carry on his throws. At the plate, he continues to show as a switch hitter with similar abilities from both sides. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He works to stay inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 57-60 mph with arm side run. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup but throws too hard, resembling fastball. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds 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.
