04/13/2014 - National Tryout - Lodi (Sacramento), CA John showed increased ability to all aspects of his game, in his most recent Baseball Factory outing. Defensively, the shortstop showed sure hands and good playability with an accurate arm. He has good pre-pitch footwork, is light on his feet and is athletic in his actions. Increasing arm strength and using his legs to throw will add to his defensive numbers. Offensively, he showed a spray approach with good rhythm and loose actions. He could be more extended through contact - staying away from spinning and collapsing the backside. Overall - John is a sophomore with good ability and is an intriguing follow.
