Jaxon showed consistency from his last outing - just a month ago - while out in Tucson with Baseball Factory. Offensively, he was smooth/ fluid with his rhythm & timing and worked his lower half through contact with an on-plane path. He grabbed a couple walks and single in his AB's with two other balls put into play, pressuring the defense. Behind the plate, he sat square and centered the ball to receive with his glove presented. His exchange was clean and he threw from the 3/4 slot to 2nd. He showed his best pops to date, continuing the trend of quicker times. Overall - Jaxon is a very intriguing player that should continue focusing on small improvements every day that result in drastic growth from event to event!
