10/01/2017 - College PREP - Parker (Denver), CO Juan is a lean, athletic shortstop in his junior year who displays advanced feel for the game defensively. His combination of athleticism and a strong arm make him a very capable defender at short who can anchor an infield. He's a playmaker with a quick first step to extend his range and can go deep in the hole to make backhand plays. His arm is accurate with carry to his target and he is a smooth double play partner with quick hands and accurate feeds to the bag. At the dish, his hands are quick and strong as he shows a whippy bat to flash pull side pop with potential for game power. He lets the ball travel while loading to a strong, separated position to launch his level swing through the zone. Staying through the ball more with extension through contact will lead to more hard hits. Juan is a talented player with lots of potential in all aspects of the game.
