Ethan continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. On the mound, arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date at 52 mph. Fastball showed a range of 60-62 mph with sinking action. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with tailing action. Getting on a long toss program to develop more arm strength will aid in improving abilities on the mound. At the plate, he shows a squared setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. At SS, he displays smooth / fluid actions. Feet are active as he attacks balls and plays through with his body. Hands are clean but needs to present more out front. Range will increase as he continues to improve foot quickness. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best he can be.
