07/05/2018 - California Select Training & Competition - Session 1 (Ages 12-14) Jesse is an athletic and talented 2023 2-way prospect. At 2B, Jesse is on time with his prep step and creates angles to the ball. He presents a low/early glove, fields in an athletic position, and has range on both sides of the ball. Continuing to practice game like throws in his throwing program will increase his ability to throw from multiple arm angles and on the run. At the plate, Jesse starts in an athletic stance, keeps a quiet head, and keeps the barrel on plane with the ball. He is explosive with the back hip and drives the ball gap to gap. On the bump, gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and has a strong front side. Continuing to work north to south and driving the back leg toward the plate will help him command the bottom part of the strike zone. Jesse is eager to learn and made several adjustments during the week. Jesse will improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
