07/31/2014 - Baseball Factory Pro Select Training at Historic Dodgertown
Josearmando is a solid young 2B/OF, with the ability to play both well. Defensively Josearmando displays smooth actions in the field, and plays downhill toward the baseball. He needs to improve his pre-pitch actions, this will help his first step toward the baseball. At the plate Josearmando shows a mechanically sound swing, and a great understanding of the swing. At times he tends to spin in the swing, this is causing his front side to leak off of the baseball before contact.
