01/15/2021 - 2021 Baseball Factory Pre-Season All-America Tournament (TX)
Eric is an athletic/projectable 2-way prospect who continues to shine on the diamond. Defensively, he has active prep and moves lightly on the balls of his feet. He works right to left, funnels smoothly and has a quick/clean transfer to throw. DP's are quick as he works well around the bag and gets the ball in and out quickly. With the bat, this lefty shows an open stance with fluid rhythm to load. A smooth stroke to and through the zone as he connects and drives the ball on a line. He has a good eye for the zone and looks to get on base anyway that he can (drawing 3 walks at the event). On the mound, Eric works tall, has smooth separation and drives downhill toward the dish. He attacks the zone aggressively working to get ahead in the count and challenging hitters to swing the bag. He works his FB in and out and compliments it with a 11/5 CB. A talented all-around 2-way prospect - the future looks bright for this 2022 grad.
12/28/2020 - Winter Pro Training Experience - TX (HS)
Eric is an athletic/projectable (6'0"/165) LHH 2-way player (SS/RHP) who shines in a variety of ways on the diamond. At the Winter Pro Training event, he posted one of his most impressive days with the Factory yet. At SS, Eric showed off his cannon with a 88 mph arm velocity paired with an athletic ready position, + range, and accurate arm. Not only did he impress at SS, but Eric also showed his pop off a little with a 4 mph jump in exit velocity to 84 mph. His loose hands, activated load, and on-time rhythm would help him make hard contact in all 6 of his at-bats. Just when we thought Eric had done it all, he stepped on the mound for an impressive 3 strikeout inning. Having command with both his 2 seam and 4 seam fastballs, Eric worked quickly through the lineup. His secondary pitches also showed well with great depth on his CB and good arm action on his changeup. Overall, Eric is a solid 2-way prospect that projects as a SS but can certainly get it done on the mound, we are excited to see where this game takes him in the future.
