01/17/2020 - Baseball Factory Spring Training in Arizona (Ages 12-14) Joshua continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a tremendous future on the diamond. In the OF, defensive abilities have improved as he displays smooth / fluid actions. Feet are aggressive as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate with on line zip on his throws but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, hitting / power potential has improved through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (80 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He works to keep hands inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. He has some strength in his swing with the baseball jumping off the bat when centered. At the event, he was 3 for 3 with 2 HR. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be. Joshua has the makings of a special type player as he continues to progress his game.
