05/25/2013 - Little League® Experience - S. Williamsport Julian is a young, athletic player with a solid set of fundamental skills. Defensively, he has loose actions with an athletic fielding position and soft/sure hands. He does a good job of fielding the ball out in front, but he can work on gaining ground and working through the baseball. He is agile and shows good range and his throws are accurate with good life. On the mound, he showed a good presence with solid mechanics and delivery. He throws strikes and challenges hitters. He has a tendency to land closed which makes him throw across his body and not get through the pitch the way he is capable of. Offensively, he is sound. He has an athletic stance, good load/stride, good balance, lower half gets through the baseball, good bat path and fluid rhythm. He can improve by working at letting the ball get deep and using the opposite field more effectively. Also, he can watch out that he doesn't create too much of an arm bar. Overall, Julian is a solid player with a bunch of upside as he continues to polish his skills.
