02/22/2013 - Yankees Spring Training Experience (Ages 14-18) Elias showed good actions and instincts as a position player. Defensively he did a good job of playing low with his body and hands, allowing him to make a clean play on the ball consistently. At the plate, he setup well and did a good job of loading with his hands and body. He maintained good balance to contact, and reached a good contact position - head on ball, head over back knee with hips and back foot rotated to pitcher. His stroke was short and he made hard ground ball and line drive type contact. Can work to improve weight transfer through contact, avoid recoil action. On the mound, his delivery was balanced and featured good direction. He tended to break his hands late, and finished upright. Can work to improve extension down the mound. Topped at 60 this outing with his fastball.
