12/27/2017 - Baseball Factory Winter Classic - Session 2 (Ages 12-14) Josh continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a promising future on the diamond. He did show on the mound for the first time at the event. At SS, defensive abilities have improved as he displays smooth actions. Feet are active as he attacks balls but needs to play through more with his body. Glove action is clean and presents well 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. At the plate, he shows a squared / crouched setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. At the event, he was 3 for 7. ON the mound, fastball shows a range of 62-64 mph. Breaking ball displays 3/9 shape with across break. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and plays the game hard.
