Jorge continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a promising future on the diamond. On the mound, arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date at 74 mph. Fastball shows a range of 70-74 mph. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with loose spin and gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup but will benefit by developing more movement on pitch. Delivery is repeatable and simple as he works in line to his target. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. At 3B, he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork as he works to square ground balls up, presenting hands as he makes the plays. He shows off his athletic abilities on his feeds of the double play. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. At the plate, he continues to shine through a tall setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields and has strength in his swing with gap-to-gap pop. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable.
