In the OF, he is aggressive to come and get the ball. He works behind the fly-ball and plays through it well. He has a clean exchange and delivers accurate throws to his target. At the plate, this righty shows a simple approach with good balance. He likes the pitch on the inner 1/2 and can pull it down the line. Only a 2018 grad - Jonathan still has a lot of time to develop his game.

As an infielder Jonathan displayed loose arm action, good arm strength/accuracy, quick/soft hands, quick/fluid footwork and good overall athleticism. He only needs to play through the ball and continue to polish fielding skills and footwork. At the plate Jonathan has a good setup, smooth load, centered balance and good bat speed. He needs to track the ball throughout the swing, let the ball travel and keep two hands on the bat longer. Jonathan is an energetic, athletic player who genuinely seems to love the game.
