10/07/2018 - College PREP - Austin, TX
Ethan is a lean, athletic SS/C who has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed is above average as indicated by his 60 time of 7.25. At SS, feet are active and aggressive as he attacks balls and plays through with his body. Glove action is soft / clean but needs to present more out front. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. Behind the dish, he utilizes his feet well in working in line to his target through a clean transfer / exchange as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Pop times show a range of 2.20-2.26 with accuracy on his throws. Time will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. He displays a soft glove and sticks balls well in the zone. He uses his body through the blocking process but needs to get down sooner. At the plate, he continues to shine through a squared setup. Hands are quick (81 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. With 4 years to further develop, Ethan has the makings of a special type player with time and room to progress his game.
