02/16/2014 - National Tryout - Monticello, IA
Jordan showed solid increased ability to his game, in his most recent Baseball Factory outing. Defensively at first, he showed sure hands with pocket awareness, and sound footwork. His overall actions in the infield were sound and he made plays. Adding flexibility will allow for greater defensive ability. In the outfield, he was fluid to the ball and played through with athleticism. He takes efficient angles - currently - but will benefit from added foot speed and arm strength. Offensively, the lefty generated good bat speed with his middle approach and got extended through contact. In all - Jordan projects well at either spot as a L/L player at the next level.

Jordan is a young, 2-way player who plays OF and 1B. In the OF, Jordan reads the ball off the bat well, he has quick feet, and he attacks aggressively. He plays through the ball well, and has some accuracy to his target. OF skills can get better if Jordan can avoid drifting and add arm strength. In the INF, Jordan attacks the ball aggressively, he moves around the bag well, and he shows solid overall fielding mechanics. Offensively, Jordan has an open stance, good balance, and a level swing path. He swings in good rhythm, and makes solid contact through the zone. Hitting can improve with a better stride, higher hands, and not pulling off the ball.
