12/27/2018 - 2018 Inaugural West Coast Winter Classic - La Verne, CA Gabriel is a coachable SS prospect who worked hard on his skills during his time at the West Coast Winter Classic. In the field, Gabriel takes a good first step and displays active footwork. He gets into an athletic position and fields the ball out in front of his body with sure hands. He makes a clean exchange and gets rid fo the ball quickly, keeping his throws accurate to his target. Taking more reps at SS can help Gabriel improve defensively. At the plate, this LHH sets up in an open stance and takes a soft stride. He is controlled getting his hands activated and remains centered with his lower half. His hips and hands work well together as he drives the ball to all fields. Gabriel can improve as a hitter by working a smoother load into his swing. With four more years to develop, Gabriel has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
