12/19/2009 - Christmas Camp and Tournament #1 Julian showed improvement during his time at Pirate City and increased his tool grades in many categories. He has excellent athleticism and play skills, and good baseball instincts. Defensively, Julian's footwork and hands play well, and his arm action is strong. His arm grade improved from 40 to 45, and his fielding remains slightly above the Varsity average mark. Offensively, Julian has good balance and bat speed and he makes solid contact. If Julian can become more disciplined at the plate, we could see offensive numbers improve.
