Jonathan is a 3B/RHP who will graduate in 2023. Has a tall frame with strength present and plenty of room to develop more strength. Ran a 6.99 60-yard dash. At 3B, he fields from the ground up with a low funnel. On-line throws from a 3/4 arm slot, with a quick release, and recorded an arm velocity of 81mph. On the mound, this right-handed pitcher has a clean arm stroke in the back with a high 3/4 arm slot coming forward. Good job of gathering over the rubber and keeping his eyes on target throughout his delivery. Showed plus command on his FB that sat 77-78mph with some tailing action. Flashed a developing changeup with some movement in the zone. FB was his best pitch during his bullpen session. Right-handed hitter who hits from an upright and even stance. Gets some hand separation, with a quiet setup, who tracks pitches well. Showed ability to hit balls to the pull side with a bat exit velocity of 70mph. With 2 years of continued growth and development, we foresee him having opportunities to play at the next level.

Jonathan is a tall/projectable (6'1"/140) RHP/OF who pounds the zone with strikes. On the mound, this RHP has a 3-pitch mix (FB, CB, CH) coming from and overhand arm slot. He separates on-time, keeps his eyes on the target and repeats his delivery well. FB ranges from 68-70 mph as he works it in and out. Breaking ball shows 12/6 shape with some good depth on a downward plane - 58-59 mph. He throws his CH with FB arm speed helping to create deception. Working to drive his lower 1/2 off of the rubber while getting more glove-side lead will help to improve effectiveness on all pitches. In the OF, he hustles to his right and left to track down fly-balls. He secures the ball with 2-hands, has a clean transfer and works in-line toward his target. As a hitter, this righty shows a tall/square stance with active hands to load. He jumps on pitches he likes and drives the ball on a line. Even more power is there as he works to engage and drive his lower 1/2 throughout the swing. Deng has tools with upside as he approaches his sophomore year.
