11/09/2017 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 14-18) Jaden continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. He only shows as a catcher at the event. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. Behind the plate, pop times have improved as he threw his lowest time to date at 2.68. Feet are active working in line through a clean transfer / exchange. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and works to get rid of the baseball quicker. Glove action is soft as he sticks balls well in the zone but will benefit by squaring up stance. He uses his body well through the blocking process but needs to work to get down sooner and improve lateral movements. At the plate, he shows a crouched setup. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. Power will continue to improve as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.
