01/17/2020 - Baseball Factory's Spring Training Tournament at Pirate City (Ages 14-18) Hayden is a stocky and strong 2-way prospect. Hayden is a solid defender with a high baseball IQ. Behind the dish, Hayden starts in an athletic stance, he presents a low target, and works behind the ball. When blocking, he needs to continue to lead with his glove and look to control the ball with his chest. When throwing, Hayden has a clean exchange, he replaces his feet, and makes accurate throws. At the plate, Hayden starts in an athletic stance, he loads his hands back into the drive position, and he gets to balance. He has good separation, good plate discipline, and he looks to drive the ball gap to gap. On the bump, Hayden gathers over the rubber, he separates on time, and has a clean arm action. He throws his fastball down in the zone, he has a medium break on his curveball, and he sinks his changeup. Hayden will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
