Hunter continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. In the OF, defensive abilities have improved as he displays fluid / athletic actions. Feet are aggressive as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls but needs to play through more with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he continues to improve his foot quickness. At the plate, hitting / power potential has improved through a tall, squared setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He shows a feel for the barrel through a line drive approach. At the event, he was 2 for 5 with a 2B. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and is a great teammate.
