John continues to shine on the diamond. At the plate a squared, tall setup. He has fluid rhythm while getting good hand separation into a strong launch position. Barrel is whipped through the zone as he connects with strength. Defensively at 1B, he shows active prep with fluid actions. He works around the GB and through it as he gains ground toward his target. Footwork around the bag is solid and he is a quality receiver. Exchange is clean with accurate throws to his target. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness.

John is an athletic and talented Infield prospect. At 1B, John has great hands and made some nice picks over the week. He is on time with his prep step, he plays through the ball, and can throw from multiple arm angles on double plays. At the plate, John starts in an open stance, he loads his hands back into the drive position, and rotates his lower half. He swings with intent and looks to drive the ball over the batters eye. John is a hard working with a bright future and we hope to see his progress in the future.

John is a thin 1st baseman who will graduate in 2021. Defensively, John has active feet, a presentable glove, and he covers ground well. He has athletic actions, a quick exchange, and he throws with carry and accuracy from a loose arm to his target. Continuing to add arm strength will only help improve defense. Offensively, John stands in with an open stance, he loads well, and has good balance. He has fast bat speed, he makes consistent contact, and he can spray the ball to all fields. Staying short and added strength will help spike hitting numbers.
