10/08/2017 - National Tryout Plus - Sauget (St. Louis, MO), IL
Gregory is a long, lean two-way prospect who is currently more advanced as a first baseman. He shows solid tools across the board for his young age, with plenty of potential for many of them to develop into impressive skills. He has a patient, selective approach at the plate, understanding his strengths and working for a pitch he can drive. He lets the ball travel and uses all fields with a level swing path to make consistent contact. At first, he has fluid actions both to field and when receiving around the bag. He shows extended lateral range and fields athletically to keep everything in front and pick balls out of the dirt. On the bump, he works directionally towards the plate with repeatable, consistent mechanics. He works well out of the stretch, creating a downhill plane to the hitter to induce weak contact. Implementing a long toss program will result in an uptick in velocity and stuff moving forward. Gregory is a young prospect we definitely want to keep an eye on.

Gregory is a tall, athletic 1B/RHP who has a promising future on the diamond. At the plate is where he shows best through an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. Power will increase as he works to utilize his lower half more efficiently. At 1B, he displays proper footwork around the bag and is a quality receiver. Hands are clean but needs to present more out front. Feet are aggressive as he attacks balls but will benefit by playing through with his body. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 63-67 mph with arm side run. Breaking ball displays 3/9 shape with across break. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be. With 6 years to further develop, Gregory has the makings of a special type player with time and room to progress his game.
