Jonte continues to shine on the diamond. At the plate, hitting potential has improved through an open setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. At SS, he displays smooth / athletic actions. Feet are active as he attacks balls and plays through with his body. Glove action is soft and presents well out front. He moves well laterally with range improving as he continues to increase foot quickness. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program.

Jonte a hardworking and talented 2022 SS prospect. At SS, Jonte is on time with his prep step and presents a low/early glove. He Fields the ball in a low position and anticipates the ball off the bat. He needs to continue to improve his first step to the ball and learn how to play through the ball consistently. This will allow him to be in a better position to make more accurate and stronger throws. At the plate, Jonte has a simple load, he looks for the ball middle-out, and makes contact to all fields. He needs to continue to be more aggressive on the fastball and attack the ball with his lower half. Jonte was very coachable and we hope to see his progress in the future.
