06/10/2013 - College PREP - Troy, MI John is a tall, solid, 2-way player who pitches and plays OF. On the mound, John has a sound / easy arm action, a controlled balance point, and on-time separation. He has good direction toward home, he throws strikes, and he finishes completely. A more consistent release point with his CB and continuing to add arm strength will help mound effectiveness improve. In the OF, John has good pre-pitch actions, he plays through the ball, and the throws with consistency and carry to his target. An earlier glove and playing lower can help OF skills improve. Offensively, John has a tall set-up, a short stride, and he finds the barrel of the bat. He keeps his hands inside the ball and he gets his lower 1/2 through. A wider base, better load, and better timing will help hitting numbers spike.
