Academic All-American Tournament (MS)
Gavin continues to show as a prospect with improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. At 2B, defensive abilities have improved as he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork and works to square body to ground balls and plays through the ball. Glove action is clean and presents well out in front. He moves well laterally with range improving as he continues to improve foot quickness. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows an open setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. At the event, he was 1 for 3.
