Landon is an athletic and hard working 2-way prospect that is very coachable and is a gamer. At SS, Landon is on time with his prep step, he presents a low/early glove, and has smooth actions to the ball. He works from the ground up and has a clean exchange. At the plate, Landon starts in an open stance, he has an active load with his hands, and gets to a balance position. He attacks the inside part of the ball and has fast hands. He needs to be more consistent rotating his lower half and keep his head down at contact. On the bump, Landon gathers over the rubber, he separates on time, and stays in line toward the plate. He needs to continue to work on his 2 seam fastball and work north to south in his delivery. Landon will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
