09/04/2016 - College PREP - San Francisco, CA Erik is a strong, lean 2017 shortstop prospect. He is a smooth defender at short with a big arm and extended range to both his glove side and backhand. He displays soft hands to field and presents them out front to play the hop he wants. He has a strong, accurate arm and makes good throws to get runners out at first. At the dish, this RHH has smooth actions, activating his hands and getting his front foot down on time. He is a line drive hitter and is able to use the whole field with a short swing. Attacking the ball out in front of the plate will allow him to extend through contact and hit the ball harder, leading to more base hits. Erik is an intriguing prospect who we look forward to watching progress in his senior year.
