06/27/2013 - California Select Training & Competition (Ages 12-14) Dimitri is a young two-way player with a thin frame that always hustles and plays hard. On the mound Dimitri shows refined mechanics with a smooth, controlled delivery and loose arm action. His release point is consistent and movements are in line with the target allowing him to pound the strike zone. Dimitri will improve greatly with more lower body explosion and a long toss/strength program to improve his velocity. In the field Dimitri squares up well to the ball but could be more active and aggressive with his footwork. Continued work on fielding the ball out in front and getting into a lower fielding position will allow him to be more consistent. At the plate Dimitri tracks the ball well and has a good stride and load position. He makes good contact but would add some pop to his bat by using his lower half more in the swing. Dimitri's coachability and work ethic will allow him to improve a lot as he gets bigger and stronger.
