Justin is a 2016 graduate who is a RHP and plays 3B. On the mound he displayed a lot of potential. His FB touched 72 mph with down/run and he threw it for strikes. Justin's mechanics were solid and his knowledge of the game is high. He needs to work hard on his conditioning and strength. At the plate Justin seemed to be affected by an injury. He did make very hard contact and was balanced but he seemed stiff/did not get the lower half through etc. Justin possesses all the athletic ability to be a successful player if makes the adjustments and works hard.
