05/06/2012 - College PREP - Long Island, NY Francis is a broad and average sized SS who graduates in 2013. Defensively, he displays playable footwork and sure hands. He gives good DP feeds, he makes consistently accurate throws to his target, and has a clean exchange. If he can take better pre-pitch movements, field more out in front, and play thru the ball to his target his defensive abilities will improve. At the plate, he shows a square setup, no load, and quiet approach. He swings with average bat speed through a level swing path, and has the ability to spray the ball to all fields. Improved timing and increased strength will help his hitting abilities to improve.
