08/05/2012 - College PREP - Dublin (Columbus), OH Hayden is a solid, strong lower half middle infielder that will graduate in 2014. At second base he shows good pre-pitch preparation, a quick first step to the ball and fields out front. He shows good range to his glove side along with a quick and clean release with average arm strength. He needs to work on more confidence in his glove by relaxing them while fielding and better arm accuracy to his target. At the plate he shows an open stance with a solid load and short stride to the ball. He makes good use of his lower half showing fast bat speed and a short path to the ball. He consistently hit line drives through the middle of the field getting good extension. More pre-pitch rhythm and a relaxed grip will continue to help his bat speed and power to the gaps. Hayden shows good foot speed as well and will continue to develop as he grows stronger physically.
