12/17/2016 - College PREP - Gambrills, MD John is a lean, wiry RHP/3B who has a promising future on the diamond. On the bump, this righty throws a 3-pitch mix coming from a high 3/4 arm slot and loose/free arm action. He works through a strong balance point and has smooth overall actions. FB ranges from 78-81 mph with arm side run. Breaking ball has 10/4 shape with late / sharp break and shows potential as being a quality pitch. Arm speed is maintained on changeup but he throws too hard and needs to develop more movement on pitch. Control is solid as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Getting on a long toss program will help to increase arm strength which will aid in his development on the mound. Foot speed is above average as indicated by his 60 time of 7.19. At 3B, he displays loose / smooth actions. Feet are aggressive as he attacks balls but will benefit by playing through more with his body. Hands are clean as he presents out front. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally. At the plate, he shows an athletic setup. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He works to stay inside the ball, utilizing all fields. Power numbers will increase as he uses his lower half more aggressively. John has an upside on the mound and will get looks from the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.
