10/19/2019 - Mid Atlantic Regional Pitching/Catching & Offensive Skills Combined Weekend (Ages 12-14)
Griffin is a coachable C prospect who worked hard on his skills during the Accelerated Training Weekend. Behind the plate, Griffin sits in an athletic stance and receives with a strong glove. He moves to block on time and centers the ball in the middle of his body. Moving more efficiently to block can help Griffin improve defensively. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a square stance and works to barrel up the baseball, producing solid line drives. Griffin can improve as a hitter by working a smoother load into his swing. With five more years to develop, Griffin has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
