10/25/2017 - Under Armour SoCal Classic, powered by Baseball Factory's Team One
George is a player who has improved since we last saw him in multiple areas on the field. He has added a tick to his fastball which will allow it to play up and help his other pitches as well. He has a loose, clean arm stroke that allows him to extend through his release and make the ball jump on hitters. He picks up the target early and works in line to the plate to show control of each of his three offerings. At the plate, he is aggressive hunting a pitch to drive with a strong lower half that generates pop. He stays balanced throughout his swing to adjust to any pitch and use all fields and make consistent, hard contact. At first, he works well around the bag to make efficient throwing angles and to pick balls in the dirt. He uses two hands and presents his glove out front to make plays cleanly and keep everything in front. George is a versatile, talented player who we expect to keep improving.
