12/27/2013 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City Jared is a young 3B/2B that will graduate in 2016. Defensive grades are average as he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are active as he works to square balls up, displaying clean hands. He shows off his athletic abilities on his feeds / turns of the double play. Defensive grade will continue to improve as he learns to attack balls more, play through while presenting hands more out front, and increase foot quickness. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, Ruan shows a squared / balanced setup and solid approach. Hands are quick and work through a direct swing path. He displays an aggressive approach and makes consistent hard contact as he shows a feel for the barrel. For hitting grades to continue to improve, he needs to work to get stride foot down sooner to work on time. Power numbers will increase as he learns to use his lower half more. At the event, he was 4 for 9 with 2 2B. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable, works hard to be the best he can be, and is a very smart player. With 2 years to further develop, Jared has abilities with time and room to improve.
