07/27/2014 - College PREP - Gillette, WY John continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, but will benefit by continuing to work to increase foot quickness. Defensive abilities are now well above average as he displays fluid actions. He moves well laterally with hands / feet working well together through the fielding process. Throws are accurate, flashing carry as he gets rid of the baseball quickly but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows a squared / balanced setup. Hands are loose and work to and through a level bat path, creating extension. He shows a feel for the barrel and makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side. Hitting grade will continue to improve as he gets stride foot down sooner to work on time and work to keep hands inside the ball to utilize all fields.
