A solid 2023 RHP/OF, Gabreal showed well at the 2020 Rookie Pre-season All-America Tournament. Strong, athletic frame he demonstrated strong velocity numbers both with his arm (83mph) and Bat Exit (81mph). Defensively, an advanced OF player, takes great routes to the ball after very good reads. Nothing gets behind him, has a very good glove, plays thru the ball and delivers strong accurate throws to his target(s). Projecting to be a game changer in the Outfield. At the plate, he controls the barrel well and has a good feel for his body, staying balanced through the swing to deliver a compact swing to the baseball. To add to his versatility, Gabreal performed very well on the mound. This RHP commanded his FB (78 mph) and his CB (-11mph) very well striking out 5 of the 8 hitters he faced, only surrendering 1 hit while not conceding a run. As he continues to develop his pitch arsenal, look for him to have a bright future on the diamond.

Gabreal is a lean, athletic RHP/OF who has a promising future on the diamond. In the OF, defensive abilities are solid as he displays fluid / athletic actions. Feet are aggressive as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. At the plate, he continues to shine through an open setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He has strength in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel, flashing gap-to-gap pop. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 73-74 mph. Breaking ball displays 12/6 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with arm side run. Control is solid as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength. With 5 years to further develop, Gabreal has the makings of a special type player with time and room to progress his game.
