Weaver continues to show as a 3B/RHP but currently projects best at 3B for the next level. Feet are active as he works to square balls up and presents soft / clean hands well out front. He needs to attack ground balls to play through and continue to improve grade. Arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity on the mound but will benefit by build more arm strength through a long toss program. Breaking ball displayed 11/5 shape with gradual break. At the plate, Evan shows loose hands that work well through a level swing path. He needs to work to get stride foot down sooner to work on time and continue to improve hitting grade. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and plays the game hard.

In Evan's latest workout he worked out as a two way player. Defensively in the outfield, he threw from high 3/4 arm slot, had playable footwork, worked behind balls, and played the routine balls well. Implementing a throwing program to utilize his lower half and strengthen his arm would be extremely beneficial to Evan. Offensively, he has a square/tall setup, short stride and fast bat speed. He made consistent contact with line-drive/gap-to-gap style approach with good extension and on-time rhythm. Using a load with his hands will help him become more fluid and cleaner with his bat path to the ball. On the mound he throws two pitches from over the top arm slot with sound arm action. He stays inline to the dish however falls off by not getting to a good balance point and landing unathletically on his heels. His fastball sat from 72-74 MPH while his curve-ball had 11/5 shape and sat from 62-64 MPH. All in all, the solid/athletically built, tri-sport athlete showed with some work, he will be a good player in years to come, and being a 2016 graduate he has the time to develop and hone his playing ability.
