02/20/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Brentwood (Long Island), NY John is a talented, 2-way player as a RHP/1B. At 1B, he displays active prep as he presents his hands out in front. He moves well around the bag and can pick throws out of the dirt. On the mound, this RHP keeps his eyes locked in on the mitt. He locates his pitches well as he finishes strong towards home plate. With the bat, John sets up square in the box. He swings level through the zone, getting leverage as he drives pitches with pull side pop. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.
Defense 1. Develop soft hands 2. Smooth exchange to throw 3. Lateral quickness Pitching 1. Lower 1/2 drive off of rubber 2. Arm strength (long toss) 3. Stronger front side Offense 1. Develop a load 2. Develop rhythm 3. Improve bat speed/hands
