12/27/2019 - Baseball Factory West Coast Winter Classic (Ages 12-14) Linkin is an athletic and talented 2-way prospect. At the plate, Linkin shows good plate discipline and is aggressive on the fastball. He has active hands in his load, he gets his front foot down on time, and he makes consistent contact. He needs to continue to get to a balanced position and attack the inside part of the ball while rotating his backside more consistently. In the OF, Linkin is on time with his prep step, he works behind the ball, and makes the routine play. Improving his exchanging and building arm strength will improve his skills at the position. On the bump, Linkin throws his fastball for strikes. He needs to continue to find a balance point, separate on time, and work downhill. Linkin will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
