08/01/2012 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 Mitchell continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities, especially on the mound. Arm strength has improved as he topped at 80 mph. His fastball showed a range of 74-80 mph with a sharp, 12/6 shape breaking ball. He needs to work on throwing more strikes to continue to improve his stock on the mound. In the OF, he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls but needs to work on getting behind balls more and play through with momentum to his target to improve defensive grades. At the plate, Mitchell shows a balanced approach with rhythm. His swing path is level and he makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side. He needs to work to stay inside the ball to utilize all fields and use lower half more to improve hitting / power grades. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works his tail off to be the best he can be.
