07/29/2017 - Under Armour All-America Game, Powered by Baseball Factory
A polished all-around game is the hallmark of Jordan Groshans. The 6 foot 4 infielder has the necessary range, hands and arm to stay on the left side of the infield, and has an impact bat that will do damage at higher levels. His approach at the plate is quiet and efficient with a simple hand trigger to get him ready to hit. With little head movement, and few moving parts overall, Jordan uses his quick hands to deliver the barrel with consistency. Not only does he find the barrel, but he does it with authority. He is also is a "baseball rat" with great makeup. Jordan is a University of Kansas commit.

Jordan, once again, showed why he is one the top prospects in the entire 2018 class. His overall approach is refreshing, as he can't seem to get enough of the game of baseball. His right-handed stroke continues to show excellent rhythm with a short, quick path to contact. He shoots line drives to all fields with flashes of pull power. Defensively he has live actions, sure hands and confidence in the infield dirt. Routine balls are outs and he takes pride in this part of his game. Jordan was on base in all four of his game at bats with 2 singles and 2 walks. We look forward to seeing more of the same at this summer's Under Armour All-America Game.

Jordan is an outstanding young player with an excellent mix of tools, make-up and the ability to play the game. He is a unique infielder as he moves well laterally, making all the plays despite a lean 6'4" frame that can handle more muscle. His hands are soft and sure and he plays the game with a confidence that allows him to be aggressive, but under control both in the field and at the plate. His exchange and release are fluid and his throws have carry from his normal arm slot and from others that he can use when necessary. At the plate Jordan has a simple, quiet approach with a short stroke and very good hands that deliver the barrel. He has some power as he showed by homering to LF in the game on an 89 mph FB tailing in on him. Jordan is a first to the park-last to leave kind of guy who has the ability and drive to play this game at a very high level.
