09/24/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Scranton, PA Drake is a 1B/RHP who will graduate in 2021. Defensively at 1B, he hustles hard laterally and tries to get into a square position when fielding GB's. His big frame allows for an easy target and he makes on-line throws to his target. On the mound, this righty stands tall and keeps his eyes locked in. He delivers a FB and CH from an over the top arm slot and finishes in line towards home plate. As a hitter, Drake has smooth rhythm to a load. He swings on a direct path through the zone and consistently sprays pitches to all parts of the field. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.
Defense 1. Quick footwork 2. Develop soft hands 3. Quick exchange to throw Pitching 1. Work downhill 2. Fill up zone with strikes 3. Arm strength (long toss) Offense 1. Be on time 2. Improve bat speed 3. More lower 1/2 drive
