12/27/2020 - Baseball Factory West Coast Winter Classic Ethan continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a promising future on the diamond. At the plate, hitting potential has improved through an athletic setup. He has fluid rhythm while getting good hand separation. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. At the event, he was 4 for8. Behind the plate he shows a squared setup and tracks the ball well with soft glove. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process, but needs to work on getting down sooner and improve lateral movements. Pop times have improved as he threw his lowest time to date at 2.39. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and has great knowledge of the game. With 5 years to further develop, Ethan has a very high ceiling with time and room to progress his game.
