11/09/2017 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 14-18) Giovanni is a (2019 grad) R/R 2B who is a hard worker. Offensively, this righty steps into the box with an aggressive approach as he's looking to swing it. He shows an athletic setup with centered balance. He gets loaded, whips the barrel with quick hands and looks to drive the middle of the field. Added strength will help to increase power at the plate. Working on tee drills will aid in helping him to drive the ball to all parts of the field consistently. Defensively in the MIF, he shows active prep footwork and comes to get the GB. He works around the ball, tracks it into his kit and gathers well. Exchange is clean with accurate throws to 1B. Working to present his glove out in front more while getting into a lower fielding position will help to improve defensive skills. Giovanni is a coachable player who hustles at all times on the diamond. He still has time to build strength and improve his skills to get to where he wants to be.
