11/08/2018 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 14-18) John is a coachable OF/RHP prospect who worked hard on his skills during his time at the Select Training & Competition at Pirate City. In the field, John is aggressive attacking the ball and makes the routine plays. He throws from a low 3/4 angle and keeps his throws accurate and on-line to his target. Getting into a lower fielding position can help John improve defensively. At the plate, this RHH sets up in an open stance and works to barrel up the baseball. Working a smoother load into his swing can help John improve as a hitter. On the mound, John gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He works with a loose arm and extends through on his release, staying inline towards the plate. John shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 64mph with cutting action. Breaking ball sits at 60mph with 10-4 break. Changeup sits from 55-56mph with good arm side run. John can improve as a pitcher by long tossing to build up his arm strength. With four more years to develop, John has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
