Joerlyn projects best at SS and showed well during his last workout with the Factory. Defensively, Joerlyn has active feet, soft hands, and he covers ground well. He fields cleanly, funnels well, and throws with accuracy and momentum toward his target from a long arm action. Fielding and arm grades both improved at the workout. At 3B, Joerlyn fields low, his hands are presentable, and his arm is accurate across the diamond. Offensively, Joerlyn stands in athletically, he has good balance, and he hits line drives. He makes square contact, he can spray to all fields, and gets his lower body through.

Joerlyn is a strong, athletic prospect with the skills and work ethic to make himself into a very good baseball player. He can pick it in the field with range and feel for his position to make tough plays. He fields athletically and from the ground up to make all the plays cleanly and field good hops. He has active, efficient footwork and a quick first step that allows him to cover plenty of ground. At the dish, he has a strong lower half to generate bat speed and pop, getting through the zone quickly. He stays balanced throughout his swing to be able to square up any pitch thrown to him and spray base hits to all fields. Working on getting on plane early with the bat will lead to more line drives and base hits. Joerlyn is an exciting, talented prospect with lots of potential on the field.

Joerlyn is a lean SS who will graduate in 2019. At SS, he displays smooth / clean actions. Feet are aggressive but needs to attack balls more and play through with his body. Glove action is clean but needs to present earlier and more out front. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows an open setup. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he works to utilize his lower half more efficiently. With 2 years to further develop, Joerlyn has abilities with time and room to progress his game.
