01/12/2018 - Baseball Factory National Spring Training at Pirate City John continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. On the mound, delivery is sound / repeatable allowing his arm action to work well to the plate. Arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date at 68 mph. Fastball showed a range of 64-68 mph. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. Control is well above average as he throws strikes, locating to both sides of the plate. Getting on a long toss program to develop more arm strength will aid in improving abilities on the mound. In the OF, he displays smooth actions. Feet are aggressive as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He reads balls well off the bat and works to get behind balls but needs to play through with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. At the plate he shows an open setup. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He works to keep hands inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.
