John continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. At the plate, hitting/power potential has improved through an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. At SS, he displays clean/smooth actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork and he works to square ground balls up. Glove action is soft/sure, presenting well out front. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 73-74 mph with cutting action. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. Stock on the mound will continue to develop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable.
