07/20/2020 - Back to Baseball Program Only - Rosemont (Chicago), IL John who has a promising future on the diamond. At the plate is where he shows best through a squared setup. He is aggressive as he attacks balls through a level swing path. Hands are quick (95 mph exit) and makes hard consistent contact through a line drive approach with gap-to-gap pop. Behind the dish, he presents a soft/sure mitt showing great pocket awareness sticking pitches. Quick lateral movements allow him to center/deaden pitches in the dirt off of a soft chest, displaying well above average blocking skills. Pop times showed in 2.30 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program.
