Eric continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. In the OF, defensive abilities have improved as he displays smooth / fluid actions. He takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind but needs to play through with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he continues to improve foot quickness. At 3B, defensive abilities have improved as he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork as he works to square ground balls but needs to play through with his body. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows a squared setup. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently.

Eric is a coachable and hard working 2020 3B prospect that made several adjustments throughout the weekend. At the hot corner, Eric fields the ball in an athletic position and throws from multiple arm slots. He needs to continue to presents a low/early glove, works from the ground up, and funnels the ball into his body. A clean exchange and creating momentum in his lower half will allow him to have a quicker release across the diamond. At the plate, Eric starts in a squared stance, and gets his front foot down on time. He has good rhythm in his load and has a middle approach. He needs to continue to attack the inside part of the ball and create backside rotation. Keeping his head down at contact will allow him to get extension thru the ball. Eric is very coachable and hustles at all times. He will continue with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
