Garrett is a young player who shows he has the potential to be a good player. At first, he has soft/sure hands and makes accurate throws. He is a big target, but still has effective footwork. He can work on his pre-pitch steps/routine and fielding position. On the mound, he has a good arm action and gets good extension which helps to create movement with pitches. Garrett separates on time and his shoulders stay level throughout his delivery. He can work on getting more drive to the plate which will lengthen out his stride and essentially help him finish in a more athletic position rather than finishing upright. At the plate, Garrett has a square set up and a short stride. His balance stays centered throughout his swing and he attacks the baseball. He can continue to work on his load/stride and creating separation between his front foot and his hands. He can also work on rhythm, and getting his lower half more involved in the swing. Overall, Garrett has potential and if he is willing to work hard to improve he will notice lots of positive improvements in his game.
