12/19/2020 - Winter Pro Training Experience - Nor Cal (HS - Dec)
Ethan is a very talented 2-way player who continues to shine in the 2024 class. In the OF, he had active prep and takes a quick first step. He covers a ton of ground, works behind and through the ball with a quick transfer to throw. Ethan creates momentum through the ball with strong/accurate throws (84 mph arm velo). He continues to shine at the plate, starting with a square/athletic setup. He uses explosive hands allowing the ball to pop off his barrel (85 mph) to all parts of the field. He produces hard/consistent contact showing gap-to-gap power. He also shines on the mound, using a solid three-pitch mix. FB ranges 83-85 with arm side run, CB had sharp break with 2-8 shape, and CH had run with deceptive arm speed. He goes after hitters and pounds the strike zone with all pitches. Ethan has great mental makeup, works hard, hustles, and is a team player. He is a special type of player who is definitely one to keep an eye on over the next few years.
