08/17/2014 - College PREP - Kapolei (Honolulu), HI John is a young, lean SS/RHP that will graduate in 2017. Currently, he projects best at SS for the next level. Foot speed is solid as indicated by his 7.31 60 time. Defensive abilities are solid as he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are active / aggressive as he attacks ground balls and plays through well with his body. Hands /feet work well together through the fielding process. Defensive grade will continue to improve as he presents glove more out front. Throws are accurate, flashing carry but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows an athletic setup with rhythm. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He works to stay inside the ball, utilizing all fields and shows a feel for the barrel. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half and load more. Fastball showed a range of 65-71 mph. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup but is too hard and needs to develop more movement on pitch. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and works to throw more strikes. With 3 years to further develop, John has potential and will get looks from the collegiate coaches as he continues to improve.
