01/18/2019 - Baseball Factory National Spring Training at Pirate City Horacio is a talented 2022 2-way prospect with a strong lower half. At 1B, Horacio fields the ball in front of his body and picks the ball well. He has a quick release on double plays and makes accurate throws. He needs to continue to be on time with his prep step, present a low/early glove, and improve his first step to the ball. At the plate, Horacio starts in an open stance, creates rhythm in his hands, and gets his front foot down on time. He needs to load his hands back into the drive position, attack the inside part of the ball, and create backside drive. He has a middle approach and had 5 solid hits during the weekend. On the bump, Horacio shows confidence in both of his pitches and has good tempo in his delivery. He has good arm action but needs to continue to find a balance point over the backside and ride his back leg downhill. Horacio was eager to learn and we hope to see his progress in the future.
