01/17/2014 - Under Armour Pre-Season All-America Tournament Jose is a slender, athletic looking infielder. Although his arm was hurt for the event, he displayed great defensive abilities. He fields the ball out front with subtle, soft hands. He has fluid actions and quick footwork, gathering himself will. He shows excellent range aided by his 6.92 60 time, getting to all balls hit in his direction. An area Jose can work to improve is his backhand footwork. At the plate, Jose shows to be a patient hitter with an up-the-middle approach. He gets himself into a strong load position with good balance, and takes a direct swing to the ball. At contact, Jose creates extension and the ball jumps off of his bat. To improve offensively, Jose can work at not sliding his hips in his swing and utilizing more of his lower half, generating even more power in his bat. Overall, Jose is an excellent player and flashes signs of a mini Carlos Gonzalez at the plate. He will defiantly catch the eyes of many coaches at the next level.
