Gannon is a solid athlete that is a 2-way prospect with a high baseball IQ. In the OF, Gannon is on time with his prep step, he starts in athletic stance, and has good instincts to the ball. He’s aggressive to the ball, he plays through ground balls, and works behind fly balls. At the plate, Gannon starts in a squared stance, he loads his hands back into the drive position, has good rhythm. He attacks the inside part of the ball, he rotates his backside, and he looks to drive the ball gap to gap. On the bump, Gannon works over the rubber, he works down hill, and has a controlled landing. He pounds the strike zone with his fastball and has a medium break with his curveball. Gannon will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
