03/02/2019 - Mid Atlantic Regional Hitting Weekend (Ages 12-14)
Evans is a coachable OF prospect who worked hard on his skills during the Accelerated Training Weekend. At the plate, this RHH sets up in an athletic stance and works to barrel up the baseball. Working a smoother load into his swing can help Evans improve as a hitter. With five more years to develop, Evans has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
12/08/2018 - Mid-Atlantic Regional Hitting Weekend (Ages 12-14)
Evans is an athletic and hard working 2024 prospect that made several adjustments throughout the Mid Atlantic Hitting Weekend. At the plate, Evans starts in a closed stance, starts his hands in a low position, and tries to create separation in his load. He needs to continue to load his hands back into the drive position, attack the inside part of the ball, and keep his head down at contact. Continuing to create backside rotation with his lower half, load knee to knee in his lower half, and staying balanced through contact will allow him to drive the ball to all fields. Evans will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

He has a clean exchange and a short/accurate arm with momentum toward his target. Offensively, Evans has a closed stance, he loads well, and he stands in well balanced.
