12/27/2019 - Under Armour Baseball Factory Recruiting Classic (Ages 14-18) Ernesto is an athletic and strong 2-way prospect that was eager to learn. In the OF, Ernesto is on time wit his prep step, he has a good first step to the ball, and works behind the ball. He plays through ground balls and makes accurate throws. Improving foot speed and building arm strength will improve his skill set at the position. At the plate, Ernesto starts in a squared stance and has good pitch recognition. Ernesto shows potential to be a line drive hitter. He needs to continue to load his hands into the drive position, attack the inside part of the ball, and create backside drive with his lower half. On the bump, Ernesto gathers over the rubber, he separates on time, and works ahead in the count. He needs to continue to have a loose arm action, find a balance point, and work downhill with his lower half. Ernesto will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
