12/20/2017 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 14-18)
Joshua continues to show a promising future on the diamond. At 2B, he displays smooth / clean actions. Hands are soft and present well out front. Feet are aggressive as he attacks balls and plays through with his body. 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 setup. Hands are loose and work inside the baseball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently.

Joshua is a young, athletic 2nd baseman who will graduate in 2020. Defensively, Joshua has active footwork, soft hands, and he attacks the ball aggressively. He takes good angles, moves well laterally, and throws with accuracy to his target. More pre-pitch actions, a quicker release, and added arm strength will help defensive numbers improve. Offensively, Joshua has an open/crouched stance, a short stride, and good balance. He is a strong hitter with a middle/opposite field approach, and decent bat speed. Offensively numbers can improve if Joshua can work on timing, shorten up his swing, and use more lower 1/2.
