06/24/2014 - Interactive Video Program - Bellevue (Seattle), WA Ian is a talented 2-way player who has an athletic frame (5'10"/145). At the hot corner, he works into a square fielding position and gathers well. He remains athletic and moves right and left fluidly. Ball is quick from glove to hand as he fires strong throws with life on them into his target at 1B. With the bat, Ian shows a simple approach with a solid base. He gets back into a loaded position and waits for his pitch. He makes consistent contact and drives the ball. On the bump, this RHP throws a FB & CB from a high 3/4 arm slot. His arm works with clean actions as he drives off in-line toward the dish. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.
