Isaiah continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. At the plate, he has improved his hitting / power potential through an athletic setup. Hands are quick and works to the through a level swing path, creating extension. He shows a feel for the barrel and stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. Working to get stride foot down sooner to work on time will aid in improving hitting grade. In the OF, he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind and plays through with momentum to his target. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. He gets rid of the baseball quickly with arm grade improving as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program.
