Joshua is a lean, athletic, 2-way player who plays 2nd base and RHP. Defensively, Joshua has good baseball smarts and he makes routine plays on balls hit his way. He throws with accuracy to his target. If Joshua can improve his hands and feet, along with adding arm strength, INF skills can get better. On the mound, Joshua has a good frame, a solid delivery, and good rhythm. His arm works well, he commands the zone, and he finishes off his pitches well. Joshua has a chance to become a solid Pitcher, and he can improve by staying on top of the ball, keeping his front side closed, and adding arm strength. Offensively, Joshua is a good contact hitter, with good strike zone awareness. He has a level swing, he hits the ball hard, and he runs the bases well. Added strength, and normal growth and maturity will help this young player become better.
