Ethan is a slim and athletic 2019 2-way prospect. On defense, Ethan is on time with his pre pitch movement and has a quick first step to the ball. He plays through the ball and gets into a strong throwing position. He has a clean exchange and quick release after he fields the ball. At the plate, Ethan starts in a closed stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and looks to do damage early in counts. He needs to continue to attack the inside part of the ball and use his lower half more consistently. On the bump Ethan has good mound presence, works downhill, and works down in the zone. He has good command of his breaking ball but needs continue to ride his back leg toward the plate. Ethan will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
