01/24/2010 - College PREP - Waipahu, HI Duke improved his abilities since the last workout in Hawaii, 1/09. He improved his arm and fielding grades in the OF, as well as his hitting and power grades. In the OF, Duke works behind the ball well, keeps the ball in front, and has an accurate arm. His arm action is short and he is not afraid to get dirty. Better extension on his throws, and looser actions should help OF skills continue to improve. Behind the plate, Duke blocks and receives well, and he moves well laterally. He works to center the ball on his chest, uses his legs when throwing, and flashes some carry on his throws. A wider base, quicker transfer, and added arm strength, should help overall abilities behind the plate get better. Offensively, Duke has good balance and use of his lower 1/2. He has a proper load, attacks the ball, and uses his hips. Duke's hitting and power grades both improved from 40's to 45's. Better rhythm and use of all fields should help Duke's offensive grades continue to rise.
