06/21/2014 - Omaha National World Series - Session 2
Gavin is a spark plug on the diamond. The rising junior is a two-way player, C/SS, that sits easily, commands the field, and has plus instincts. He flashes pops in the 2.1 range and will be able to decrease his times with a quicker transfer. Offensively, he gets to a good launch position, on-time and gets his hands activated. He is strong at the dish, despite having a smaller frame, and is sound to contact. All in all - when Gavin adds strength over the next two years, his game will rise to unprecedented levels.

Gavin continues to show solid abilities on the diamond as a 2-way player (C/SS). Behind the plate, he shows good sway and frames the ball well. He has a quick exchange and continues to keeps pop times in the low 2's. At SS, he shows good prep and moves well around the ground ball. He fields it cleanly and delivers accurate throws across the diamond. Offensively, Gavin shows a simple approach and good rhythm, getting back into a loaded position. He is a top of the line-up type guy with his abilities to consistently barrel up the ball. Gavin is only a sophomore and will only continue to improve.

Gavin is a young C/SS that will graduate in 2016. Feet are active as he works in line to his target through a clean transfer / exchange. Pop times were in the 2.25-2.41 range as he needs to work on gaining ground, and building more arm strength to continue to lower times. Receiving / blocking skills show as playable tools that will play well at the next level. At SS, he works to square balls up while presenting clean hands. He needs to play through more and increase foot quickness to continue to improve defensive grade. At the plate, Bullock shows a balanced approach with rhythm. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path as he makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side. He needs to work to stay inside the ball to utilize all fields with power numbers improving as he learns to use his lower half more. At the event, he was 4 for 8. With 4 years to further develop, Gavin has a lot of potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches as he continues to improve.
