01/18/2019 - Baseball Factory Spring Training at Historic Dodgertown
Joel is a coachable 2B/OF prospect who worked hard on his skills during his time at the Spring Training at Historic Dodgertown. In the field, Joel makes the routine plays and keeps his throws accurate to his target. Getting into a more athletic fielding position can help Joel improve defensively. At the plate, this switch hitter shows a solid swing from both sides. He sets up in a tall stance with comfortable hands. He is smooth getting into his load and drives the ball into the gaps. Joel can improve as a hitter by taking a square stride towards the pitcher. With four more years to develop, Joel has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
