09/06/2020 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Stockton (Sacramento), CA John is an athletic C/3B who has a promising future on the diamond. 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. Runners will not want to test his cannon for an arm (85 mph velocity) with pop times showing in the 2.13 range. At 3B, defensive abilities are well above as he displays smooth / athletic actions. Feet are active as he works around balls and plays through with his body. Glove action is clean and presents well out front. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. At the plate, he displays well above average hitting abilities with excellent power potential through a crouched setup. Hands are quick (87 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. With 3 years to further develop, John has the makings of a special type player with time and room to progress his game.
