10/16/2019 - Arizona Freshman Fall Classic
Ian is a coachable 1B/RHP prospect who worked hard on his skills during the Arizona Fall Classic. In the field, Ian fields well and keeps his throws accurate to his target. Long tossing to build up his arm strength can help Ian improve defensively. At the plate, this RHH sets up in an athletic stance and gets into his load well. He takes a level swing and produces solid contact. Ian can improve as a hitter by not over swinging. On the mound, Ian shows a two pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 75mph with arm side run. Breaking ball sits at 69mph with 10-4 break. Gathering to a balance point over the rubber can help Ian improve as a pitcher. With four more years to develop, Ian has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
