12/27/2012 - Pirate City Christmas Camp and Tournament
Josh is an athletic C/RHP that will graduate in 2014. Behind the plate, feet are active / aggressive as he works in line through a clean transfer / exchange in getting rid of the ball quickly. Pop times show a range of 2.06-2.19 with accuracy on his throws. Throws are accurate with life and on line carry through his target. Receiving / blocking skills show as quality tools that will play well at the next level. At the plate, Evans shows a balanced approach with rhythm. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a strong swing path. Barrel accuracy is a plus with the baseball jumping off his bat when centered. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 76-81 mph with arm side run on a downhill. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with mid depth. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as more arm strength is gained. Mental makeup is a plus as he shows great attitude and strong love for the game. Josh has a ton of potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches as he continues to improve, possibly as a two-way player.
