Fernando showed nice improvements and overall skills during his last workout with The Factory. At 3B, Fernando has good athleticism, efficient footwork, and he covers ground well. He keeps the ball in front of his body, his exchange is clean, and he throws with good direction from a long arm action to his target. On the mound, Fernando has good balance, on time separation, and he lands with good direction toward home plate. His FB touched 69 MPH and he is around the zone with his pitches. At the plate, Fernando has a square set-up, good balance, and he makes consistent contact. He tracks well, swings on plane, and he uses his lower body.

Fernando is a 3B/RHP prospect who will graduate in 2023. In the field, Fernando centers the ball in the middle of his body and makes the routine plays. He throws from a 3/4 angle and keeps his throws accurate to his target. Fernando can improve defensively by getting into a more athletic fielding position. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a square stance and takes a square stride. He is smooth getting back into his load and maintains center balance. He takes a direct swing with fast bat speed which leads to hard contact to his pull side. On the mound, Fernando gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 65mph with sinking action. Breaking ball sits from 55-58mph with 10-4 break. Changeup ranges from 58-63mph as he throws with fastball arm speed. Fernando can improve as a pitcher by striding directly towards the plate. With five more years to develop, Fernando has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
