JJ is a dynamic young prospect with an exciting skill set that includes an advanced LH bat. At the plate JJ has a loose, easy LH stroke from a relaxed and balanced approach. He has excellent "hitting hands" delivering the barrel consistently and handling pitches in all parts of the strike zone. He uses the entire field well and the ball comes off his bat with surprising pop wherever it is hit. JJ put together several quality in-game at bats, going 2-3. In the IF JJ has good natural actions, taking good angles and and displaying sure hands.
