12/15/2018 - Texas Regional Offensive Skills Weekend (Ages 14-18)
Jonathan is a coachable 3B prospect who worked hard during his time at the Texas Skills Weekend. At the plate, Jonathan sets up in a tall stance and takes a square stride. He gets his hands activated on time and is explosive getting his lower half through. He takes a level swing with fast bat speed and good extension, leading to loud contact and solid pop to his pull side. Getting into a bigger load can help Jonathan improve as a hitter. Overall, Jonathan is a talented prospect who has the potential to further progress his skills at the plate.

Jonathan is a solid, athletic, 2-way player who plays 3B and RHP. Defensively, Jonathan has quick feet, agile movements, and soft/presentable hands. He fields athletically, his exchange is clean, and he throws with accuracy and carry from a quick arm action. Playing a little lower and following his throws more across the diamond can help defense get better. On the mound, Jonathan has a loose arm circle, he works in good tempo, and lands with good direction toward home plate. He gets good extension on his pitches, his off-speed show well, and he throws strikes. More glove side lead, added arm strength, and a sharper CB will help mound effectiveness further improve. Offensively, Jonathan has a tall/square set-up, a strong base, and a direct barrel to the ball. He has a good bat angle, a strong top hand, and he uses some lower body. Improved timing, barrel accuracy, and more lower body will help hitting numbers spike.
