Ethan continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. At 2B, defensive abilities are now solid as he shows smooth / fluid actions. Feet are active as he attacks ball and plays through with his body. Hands are clean and present well out front. In the OF, he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. Feet are aggressive but needs to work to get behind balls more and play through with momentum to his target. He moves well laterally with range improving as he continues to improve foot quickness. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, hitting abilities have improved through an open setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently.

Ethan is a coachable 2B/OF in the class of 2025 out of White Bluff, TN. At 2B, he did a good job of prepping on the balls of his feet to be ready to take great angles to the ball off the crack of the bat. He got square to the baseball in a low fielding position to catch and work through with a clean exchange. He followed his tosses/feeds to his intended targets. Offensively, he showed a short quick swing that was direct to the baseball. His bat path enabled him to hit the ball hard to all parts of the field. Ethan could benefit from programs/drills such as long toss, strength training, load timing drills, bands, speed & agility.

Ethan is a young, solid, 2-way player who plays 2nd base and OF. In the INF, Ethan has active feet, he covers ground well, and he fields in a square position. He makes plays, his release is quick, and he throws with accuracy from a short arm action across the diamond. If Ethan can field a little further out in front, play more through, and continue to add arm strength, abilities at 2B will continue to improve. In the OF, Ethan has efficient footwork, a good 1st step to the ball, and he fields squarely. He has good range, makes plays, and has a high 3/4 arm slot to his cut off man. Added arm strength, a quicker release, and more crow hop will help improve OF skills. At the plate, Ethan stands in the box squarely, he has good balance, and a fluid/smooth swing. He has quick hands, an aggressive swing, and he makes consistent contact gap to gap. Work on timing and more lower 1/2 will spike hitting numbers.
