02/04/2017 - College PREP - Parker (Denver), CO Ethan is a tall, broad 1B prospect who has the prototypical frame of a power hitting first baseman. His power is his best tool as he shows the ability to drive the ball into the gaps with potential for home run power as he matures. His lower half works well to generate bat speed through the zone as his swing path is direct to the ball to make consistent, hard contact. His swing is compact and repeatable, and he keeps his hands inside the ball to spray line drives to all fields with big power to the pull side. At first, he has a good pre-pitch routine to get himself in the best positions to make a play. He works well around the bag and can pick the ball out of the dirt to help out his infielders, while covering the DP well. Speed and agility drills will improve range and fielding position moving forward. Ethan is an exciting prospect who we want to keep an eye on.
