02/04/2017 - College PREP - Parker (Denver), CO Joe is a long, lean C/1B prospect with the ability to contribute at both positions. He has a very strong arm at first which allows him to turn the DP with ease and make strong throws in tough situations. His active feet work well around the bag and he picks the ball well while showing range to make plays in the hole and down the line. Behind the plate, he has an easy, low setup and tracks the ball in well while working around. He has fluid footwork to collapse quickly and smother the ball in the dirt, while gaining ground to throw. At the plate, he shows a compact swing with a level path that allows him to make lots of contact and spray hits to all fields. He loads to a powerful bat angle and his lower half generates bat speed through the zone and power on contact. Working on extending his arms through contact will result in more backspin and carry to increase power moving forward. Joe is a prospect who we are excited to watch as he continues to develop.
