11/06/2020 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition in Arizona
Gannon continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. In the OF he displays smooth actions. He takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He needs to work to get behind balls and play through with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate, but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows a squared setup. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will continue to increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable. Only a 2025 grad - Gannon still has a ton of time to progress and physically mature (get stronger).
12/14/2019 - Nor Cal Regional Offensive Skills and Pitching/Catching Combined Weekend (Ages 12-14)
Gannon is a coachable C prospect who worked hard on his skills during the Accelerated Training Weekend. Behind the plate, Gannon sits in a square stance and tracks the ball into his glove. He throws from a 3/4 angle and works to keep his throws accurate to the 2B bag. Receiving with softer hands can help Gannon improve defensively. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a square stance and gets into his load well. He works to barrel up the baseball and drives to the opposite field. Gannon can improve as a hitter by taking a shorter stride. With five more years to develop, Gannon has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
