01/15/2021 - 2021 Baseball Factory Pre-Season All-America Tournament (TX)
Gage continues to shine in many ways on the diamond. Offensively, this strong switch hitter steps into the box with intent. He works back into an activated load getting his hands into a strong launch position and is ready to jump on pitches he likes. Quick hands fire the barrel to and through the zone as he connects and creates good extension through contact. He battles with 2-strikes and proved to be a tough out. At 1B, he has active prep and moves well laterally. He is quick around the 1B bag adjusting his feet to throws up and down the line. On the mound, this RHP has sound mechanics and repeats his delivery well. He stays directional and pounds the zone with strikes. He moves his FB in and out while his CB has 11/5 shape with early action. Gage is a skilled 2-way prospect who has a ton of upside and will make an impact in a variety of ways at the next level.

Gage is a solid, strong 3B/RHP who has a promising future on the diamond. At the plate is where he shows best, displaying outstanding hitting abilities with tremendous power potential through an open setup. Hands are quick (87 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He has strength in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel with power showing best to the pull side. At 3B, he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are aggressive as he attacks balls but needs to play through more with his body. Glove action is firm and presents well out front. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 74-76 mph with arm side run. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with late break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup but throws too hard, resembling fastball. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. With 2 years to further develop, Gage has the makings of a special type player with time and room to progress his game.
