02/12/2017 - College PREP - Monticello, IA John is a lean, athletic SS who has a promising future on the diamond. In the MIF, defensive abilities are solid as he displays clean / fluid actions. Feet are aggressive as he attacks balls and presents a soft / sure glove well out front. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally to both sides. Hands / feet work well together as he gets rid of the baseball quickly with accuracy on his throws but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He works to stay inside the ball, utilizing all fields, flashing gap-to-gap pop. With 3 years to further develop, John has potential with time and room to progress his game.
