10/23/2021 - Mid-Atlantic Regional Offensive Skills Weekend (Ages 12-14)
Joaquin continues to show improvements with his baseball abilities. At the plate, this LHH has improved his hitting / power potential through an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. Barrel accuracy is a plus and swings with intent, creating extension through contact. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Lower half works well through the swing and he maintains balance.

Joaquin is a LHP/1B who will graduate in 2027. Medium frame with some strength and plenty of room/time to add strength. On the mound, this left-handed pitcher works exclusively from the stretch. Smooth delivery who keeps eyes on target throughout delivery. Gathers over the rubber and pitches with good tempo. Throws from a high 3/4 arm slot and ability to throw strikes. Throws a FB that sat 47-49mph, a 2/8 shaped curveball and a developing cutter. CB was his best pitch during his bullpen. As Joaquin starts to incorporate his lower half, as well as a long toss and J-band program, his arm strength and command will improve. At 1B, he shows ability to center ball and make the routine plays. Hits from the left side with an athletic and closed stance. Smooth swing, with a flat bat through zone, and ability to keep hands inside the ball. Sprayed the ball to all fields and a bat exit velocity of 59mph. With continued growth and development, he should have a bright future at the high school level.
