11/11/2021 - Baseball Factory Fall Select Tournament at Pirate City
Jimmy continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. At SS, he displays smooth/fluid actions. Hands are clean and presents well out front. Range will increase as he continues to improve foot quickness. At the plate, hitting/power potential has improved through an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball and utilizes all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. On the mound, arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date at 69 mph. Fastball shows a range of 66-69 mph with tailing action. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and develops off speed pitches. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable.

Works with good rhythm and has a good baseball clock. Square fielding position and has a low funnel. Attacks the baseball, with a quick/clean exchange, and a short/quick arm action. Accurate/on-line throws, with a quick release, from a high 3/4 arm slot and an arm velocity of 73mph. Showed good footwork around the bag on DP plays. A right-handed pitcher, good balance to delivery and ability to repeat his delivery. Works off of a FB that sits 63-65mph who keeps his fingers on top of baseball. Mixed in a 12/6 shaped breaking ball and a developing changeup. FB was his best pitch during his bullpen. At the plate, he hits from an upright and open stance. Quiet head and level eyes enable him to track pitches well. Made contact to all fields, with a direct barrel path, and a bat exit velocity of 67mph during BP. With continued growth and development, we foresee him having a bright future on the baseball diamond.
