08/04/2014 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2
Grey continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. He improved his foot speed at the event as he ran his best 60 time to date, now an above average runner at 7.39. In the OF, he utilizes his quick, athletic feet well in tracking down balls as he reads well off the bat and takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He needs to work to get behind balls more to play through with momentum to his target to continue to improve defensive grade. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows a balanced setup. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact and has some strength in his swing with power numbers improving as he learns to use his lower half more. On the mound, arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date, topping out at 78 mph. Fastball showed a range of 74-78 mph with arm side run. Breaking ball displays 2/8 shape with late break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup, showing a feel for but needs to develop more movement on pitch. Control is solid as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will improve as he builds more arm strength. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and plays the game hard.
