01/18/2019 - Baseball Factory Spring Training at Historic Dodgertown
Felix is a talented 2024 1B prospect that was eager to learn and made several adjustments throughout the weekend. At 1B, Felix works off the bag well and fields the ball in a low position. He needs to continue to be on time with his prep step, present a low/early glove, and work from the ground up. Understanding positioning on cut offs and improving his first step to the ball will increase his range. At the plate, Felix starts in a wide stance and rotates his backside to the ball. He makes consistent contact and has an opposite field approach. He needs to continue load his hands back into the drive position, attack the inside part of the ball, and finish his swing. Being more aggressive on the fastball and creating whip in the barrel will allow him to have more rhythm in his stance as well. Felix continues to improve and we hope to see his progress in the future.
