08/05/2012 - College PREP - Dublin (Columbus), OH JD is an athletic outfielder that will graduate in 2015. At the plate, he shows a square stance with a short stride and balance throughout his swing. He makes consistently hard contact getting the most out of his lower half. He has good pull side pop to the gap getting the hands out front. He needs to relax his hands on the bat, work on keeping his hands inside the ball and get more of a hand load prior to his swing to help with bat speed. Defensively, he shows good pre-pitch preparation, an aggressive approach to the ground ball and he fields in the proper setup. His feet are active taking proper angles to the ball with soft hands. He has a clean exchange showing good accuracy on his throws. Overall arm strength and staying behind the fly ball to throw will help get more carry on his throws. JD has great speed and is strong for his size and age.
