08/23/2015 - College PREP - Farmingville (Long Island), NY Fred Lucas is a very impressive offensive SS that will graduate in 2017. With the stick, he generates good bat speed with fluidity through the swing. His balance was excellent, allowing him to use some of his lower half for strength at contact. He has a middle approach with present pop and will continue to improve with even more (later) explosiveness to utilize contact points more frequently. Defensively, he worked with a sure glove and was fluid in his actions. He was always smiling on the field bringing great energy to everyone around him and had feel for the position. His transfer was clean and he was accurate to throw after catch with more untapped arm strength - which he can get through a throwing program and a higher arm slot. In all - Fred is an intriguing ball player that can flat out hit, a very necessary attribute for a next level guy.
