John continues to show a promising future on the diamond with the makings of a special type player at the next level. In the OF (a 6.64 runner) not many balls get down that are hit his way. Transfer exchange is smooth as he zips throws on a line through his target. He has the versatility to play all 3 OF spots effectively. A LHH - he stands in with a solid/strong base and has fluid rhythm to load. Barrel delivery is short/quick with aggression as he connects with power driving all parts of the field.

This athletic (5'10"/150) OF continues to shine. With lightning speed (6.50) he can cover ground in the OF as well as be a threat every time he's on base. Defensively, he covers a ton of ground and works through the ball, gaining well forward his target. At the plate, this lefty remains compact, barrels up the ball and drives it on a line. He is out of the box and down the 1B line putting pressure on the defense. This 2019 grad is one to keep an eye on over the next couple of years.
