We have grown very fond of Jose over the 3+ years we have known him. He shows a maturity in the dugout that coaches adore. At his latest Baseball Factory workout, his exit velocity was up to 90mph. Defensively, he displays smoothness through the ball. We would like to see him get lighter on his feet to give him more defensive versatility. Right now, we see him as a 3B at the next level.

Jose is an IF prospect who continues to showcase his skills on the field. In the field, Jose shows good range to his glove side and makes a clean exchange, keeping his throws accurate and on-line to his target. Getting into a more athletic fielding position can help Jose improve defensively. At the plate, this LHH sets up in a closed stance and takes a short stride. He is smooth getting into his load and drives through well with his lower half. He takes a level swing and drives the ball to his pull side. Jose can improve as a hitter by taking a shorter swing path. Overall, Jose is a developing prospect who has the potential to further progress his skills on the field.

Jose continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. At the plate, hitting / power potential have improved through a tall, squared setup. Hands are quick and aggressive as he attacks balls in the zone. 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 works to square balls up but needs to attack more and play through with his body. Glove action is clean but will benefit by presenting more out front. Range will increase as he continues to improve his foot quickness. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program.

Jose showed offensive and defensive improvements during his last workout in Bel Air. Offensive numbers improved to 42 and 45. Jose stands in with a tall set-up, he loads well, and gets good extension through the ball. He has fast bat speed, swings on plane, and can spray the ball to all fields. Improved timing and barrel accuracy will help hitting numbers continue to rise. At SS, Jose fields low, his hands are firm, and he has good pre-pitch actions. He reads the ball off the bat well, he has clean exchange, and throws with a long arm action to his target. Quicker feet and added arm strength can help INF skills get better.

Jose is a lean SS/3B who will graduate in 2020. At the plate is where he shows best through a squared setup. Hands are quick and work through a compact swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Barrel accuracy is a plus and he stays on plane through contact. In the IF, he displays smooth / fluid actions. Feet are active / aggressive as he takes good first steps in attacking the baseball. Glove action is soft / clean but needs to present more out front. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and plays the game hard. With 3 years to further develop, Jose has potential with time and room to progress his game.
