Juan showed well at both positions during his last workout with The Factory. He is a solid/athletic player with a high ceiling. At 3B, Juan has quick/fluid feet, soft hands, and a good glove angle to the baseball. He fields athletically, his exchange is quick and clean, and he throws with momentum and accuracy across the diamond. Behind the plate, Juan sits in athletically, he has fluid footwork, and receives softly. He gets down quickly to block and has a strong arm with pop times as low as 2.2 seconds to 2nd base. Offensively, Juan has a tall/open stance, he loads well, and swings aggressively. He has quick hands, good balance, and fast bat speed. Solid overall skills can get even better with work on the following.
1. Body control
2. Arm angle
2. Avoid stabbing
1. Shorten swing

Juan is a strong and talented 2024 2-way prospect that worked hard all week. At the hot corner, Juan starts in an athletic position, presents a low/early glove, and has good hands. He has a good exchange and makes strong throws across the diamond. He needs to continue to be on time with his prep step and play through his backhand. At the plate, Juan starts in an open stance, he loads his hands back, and creates backside drive with his lower half. He has good bat speed and shows the ability to pull the ball. Getting his front foot down on time and keeping a quiet head will allow him have better pitch recognition. On the bump, Juan has good presence and competes on every pitch. He gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and has a clean arm action. Juan made several adjustments throughout the week and we hope to see his progress in the future.
