Gage is an athletic and talented 2021 2-way switch hitting prospect that continues to improve. At the hot corner, Gage is on time with his prep step, he presents a low/early glove, and he works from the ground up. From the right side of the plate, he starts in an open stance, he loads his hands back into the drive position, and he looks to drive the ball to the opposite side of the field. From the left side, he rotates his core to the ball, he attacks the inside part of the ball, and looks to drive the ball gap to gap. On the bump, Gage gathers over the rubber, he separates on time, and he works down hill in his delivery. He has good mound presence and attacks both sides of the plate. He has command of his fastball, he gets good depth on his curveball, and he commands his changeup. Gage is highly motivated and we hope to see his progress in the future.

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.
