Luis showed very well overall during his last workout with The Factory. He is a young, talented prospect with a high ceiling. Behind the plate, Luis has active footwork, a presentable glove, and he tracks the ball. He is a confident receiver, covers the 5 hole when blocking, and throws with accuracy and consistency to his target. Pop times to 2nd base lowered to 2.2 seconds. Blocking sooner and quickening his release will help improve catching abilities. At 3B, Luis has active feet, good pre-pitch actions, and he works through to his target. He picks out the right hops, his exchange is clean, and he throws with consistency across the diamond. Added urgency and a quicker release will help abilities at 3B get better. At the plate is where Luis shines. He is a strong hitter with a square stance, good balance, and solid bat ship. He has fast bat speed, a direct barrel, and he hits with power gap to gap.
