10/27/2018 - 2018 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's Futures South Ethan is solid, athletic C/2B who has a promising future on the diamond. Behind the plate, pop times are in the 1.94 range as he gets rid of the baseball quickly with zip (84 mph exit velocity) on his throws. With flexion and good sway he pockets pitches with a soft/sure mitt. He shows off his athletic abilities through the blocking process and is a wall behind the plate. In the MIF, he creates angles around the GB with fluid actions. Glove action is soft/sure and he presents well out front. DP turns are quick with zip on his throws. At the plate, he has fluid rhythm while getting good hand separation. Barrel is whipped (85 mph exit velocity) through the zone as he connects with strength. The ball jumps off of his barrel as he crushes it to the gaps. A talented prospect, he will make things happen both offensively and defensively.
