11/12/2017 - Interactive Video Program - North Charleston, SC Jonethan is a young, athletic 2-way player as an OF/RHP. In the OF, he has active footwork and hustles to tack down fly-balls hit to his right and left. He gathers well, works through the ball and has a clean exchange to throw. With the bat, this righty displays an athletic setup with centered balance. Quick hands whip the barrel on a level pay as he squares the ball up and hits line-drives. On the mound, Jonethan has a 3-pitch mix coming from a high 3/4 arm slot. He works to a controlled balance point, has smooth separation and works in-line toward the dish. FB tops out at 63 mph while showing slight run. Breaking ball has 11/5 shape while CH shows some sink. Continuing to work on the following will help to improve his overall skill-set on the diamond.
