09/05/2010 - College PREP - Azusa, CA John is a 3B with an average, thin frame that shows projection as he continues to physically mature, filling out. Feet are active but needs to be more aggressive in coming to get, playing through the baseball with his body. He moves well laterally, showing a solid backhand. Glove action is soft but unsure due to feet stopping through the fielding process. Throws show accuracy but must get on a long toss program to develop more arm strength and carry. Offensively, Espinoza loads well, showing a balanced approach with hands working through a level swing path. He has strength in his swing with baseball jumping off his bat when centered but has some mechanical flaws that are hindering him from reaching his full potential with grades improving quickly with instruction and adjustments. John has abilities with a lot of room to improve.
