11/17/2013 - College PREP - Houston, TX Gerrek is a lean 2B that will graduate in 2014 with plus tools across the board. Foot speed is slightly above average as indicated by his 7.46 60 time. Defensive abilities are well above average as he displays smooth / clean actions. Feet are active / aggressive as he moves well laterally and works to square balls up, displaying soft / sure hands. He works around and plays through the ball well with his body. For defensive grade to continue to improve, he needs to improve double play feeds / turns. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he continues to shine through an athletic / open setup and he tracks the ball well. Hands are quick, aggressive, and generate bat speed through a level swing path. He shows a feel for the barrel and strength in his swing with the baseball exploding off the bat when centered, mainly to the pull side. For hitting grades to continue to improve, he needs to work to stay inside the ball to utilize all fields. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. Gerreck has a ton of potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.
