07/09/2013 - College PREP - Minneapolis, MN Ethan is an athletic SS that will graduate in 2014. Foot speed is solid as indicated by his 7.28 60 time. Feet are active as he attacks ground balls and moves well laterally, displaying range in the MIF. Hands are soft / clean but needs to present more out front to continue to improve defensive grade. Throws are accurate, flashing carry but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, Fairbanks shows a balanced approach with rhythm. He makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side. For hitting grades to continue to improve, he needs to work to keep hands inside the ball to utilize all fields. He shows a feel for the barrel with Power numbers continuing to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. Ethan has abilities with a lot of room to improve.
