01/13/2017 - Baseball Factory Spring Training in Arizona (Ages 14-18) Hakeem is a strong, stout 2018 3B prospect who really enjoys playing the game and does whatever he can to improve. He uses his frame well at the plate, generating pop, especially to the pull side when he stays strong with his lower half. He shows a tall setup in the box with a patient approach and good feel for the strike zone. He tracks the ball well to the bat and pick up pitches early to lay off breaking balls out of the zone and work the count to get on base. At the hot corner, he positions himself well, knowing where he needs to be for each batter to have the best chance to take away a hit. He works hard and is aggressive getting to the ball to cover all the range he can and make as many plays as possible. Working on agility drills will improve foot speed and lateral movement to increase his range and improve footwork. Hakeem is a hard worker who shows the determination to be the best player he can be.
