07/05/2019 - California Select Training & Competition - Session 1 (Ages 12-14)
Jayden is an athletic and hard working 2023 2-way prospect. He made several adjustments throughout the week and applied them in game. On the bump, Jayden has a simple delivery, he gathers over the rubber, and separates on time. He throws his fastball down in the zone and competes on every pitch. At 2B, Jayden is aggressive to the ball and has good footwork when throwing the ball. He makes the routine play but needs to continue to be on time with his prep step, present a low/early glove, and improve his range. At the plate, Jayden starts in a tall stance, he loads his hands back, and looks to make contact through the middle part of the field. He rotates his backside through the ball and hunts the fastball. Jayden will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
