09/27/2014 - 2014 Under Armour Showcase: Futures West
Josh continues to improve each time we see him, and he showed very well at the Futures West event. His calling card is a sweet LH stroke that is simple and effective with very few holes for a young hitter. He has the advanced ability to let the ball travel, pick his pitch and make hard barrel contact to all fields. Hitting seems to come easy to him as he is unfazed by velocity or breaking stuff. Defensively, Josh reads the ball well off the bat, takes good angles and can make plays in all three OF spots. Overall, Josh has the type of LH bat that is in demand at all levels.
