12/27/2018 - 2018 Inaugural West Coast Winter Classic - La Verne, CA
Evan is an athletic and talented 2023 SS prospect that worked hard all week. At SS, Evan is on time with his prep step, he presents a low/early glove, and anticipates the ball off the bat. He has a great first step to the ball and has range on both sides of the ball. He has good turns on double plays and throws from multiple arm angles. At the plate, Evan starts in an athletic stance, hits off a firm front side, and rotates his hips to the ball. He needs to continue to attack the inside part of the ball and create backside rotation with his lower half. Evan is a quiet leader and will continue to improve with experience.
07/05/2018 - California Select Training & Competition - Session 1 (Ages 12-14)
Evan 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, now an above average runner at 7.28. At SS, defensive abilities have improved as he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork as he works to square ground balls up, displaying sure hands as he makes the plays. He shows off his athletic abilities on his feeds of the double play. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. At the plate, hitting / power potential has improved through a tall setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact and shows a feel for the barrel with gap-to-gap pop. Power will continue to improve as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable.
