On the mound, he shows a sound / repeatable delivery, working in line and on time allowing his arm to work loose / free to the plate. Fastball showed a range of 61-62 mph. Breaking ball displays 1/7 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup but throws too hard to fastball velocities. He shows good mound composure and competes on the mound. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength. At the plate, he shows a closed setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will continue to improve as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and plays the game hard. With 3 years to further develop, John has abilities with time and room to progress his game.
