01/17/2014 - Baseball Factory Spring Training at Pirate City Lance is lean SS/2B that will graduate in 2015. Foot speed is slightly above average as indicated by his 7.44 60 time. Defensive grades are solid as he displays smooth / clean actions and takes charge in the MIF. Feet are active as he works to square balls up, displays clean hands as he makes the routine plays. Defensive grade will continue to improve as he attacks balls more and presents hands more out front. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows a squared / balanced setup. Hands are loose and works through a level swing path. He works to keep hands inside the ball, utilizing all fields and shows a feel for the barrel with baseball jumping off the bat when centered. Hitting grades will continue to improve as he works to get stride foot down sooner to work on time. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to load more and transfer weight properly through his lower half. He had an outstanding event at the plate, going 4 for 4 with 2 2B and 3B as he utilizes his quick feet in getting around bases. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a great attitude, is a hard worker, and is very coachable. Lance has abilities with a lot of room to improve.
