07/07/2019 - Baseball Factory Cleveland All Star Experience (Ages 12-14)
Jaxson is a coachable C/3B prospect who worked hard on his skills during the Cleveland All Star Experience. Behind the plate, Jaxson sits in an athletic stance and presents a good target to the pitcher. He gains ground when throwing and keeps his throws accurate to the 2B bag. He moves to block on time and tucks his chin well. Jaxson can improve defensively by long tossing to build up his arm strength. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a square stance and takes a square stride. He gets into his load on time and drives through well with his lower half. He hits against a strong front side and produces solid line drives. Activating his hands more can help Jaxson improve as a hitter. With seven more years to develop, Jaxson has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
