11/17/2013 - College PREP - Houston, TX Juan is a lean, athletic 1B that will graduate in 2014. Defensive abilities are solid as he displays outstanding foot work around the bag and is a quality receiver. He works to get around ground balls and squares up well. Hands are soft /sure and he consistently showed the ability to pick balls out of the dirt, saving throws. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows a squared / athletic setup and an aggressive approach. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side. For hitting grade to continue to improve, he needs to work to keep hands inside the ball to utilize all fields. Juan has abilities with a lot of room to improve.
