06/25/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Bellevue (Seattle), WA Joel is a skilled 2-way player as a RHP/OF. On the mound, this righty has a 3-pitch mix (FB, SL, KN) coming from an over the top arm slot. He works to a tall/controlled balance point, has smooth separation and stays directional toward the plate. FB ranges from 50-55 mph while slider has 9/3 action. Knuckleball shows some tumble as he works to keep it down in the zone. In the OF, Joel works lightly on the balls of his feet and covers some ground. He works behind and through the ball with a clean exchange to throw. Offensively, this righty has a tall/square setup with good balance. Swing is level through the zone as he looks to drive the ball back up the middle of the field. Continuing to work on the following will aid in his development on the diamond.
