12/27/2015 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City - Session 2 Luke works hard on his skills and showed well during his time at Pirate City. At SS, he has active footwork and moves well around the GB from right to left. He gathers well and has a clean exchange to throw. Strengthening his arm (long toss) will help him to grow on the left side of the INF. With the bat, Luke steps into the box with a purpose, looking to swing it. He takes an aggressive hack and drives the ball back up the middle of the field. Getting loaded sooner and smoothening out his stride will help to increase contact consistency along with allowing him to utilize more of his lower 1/2 throughout the swing. On the bump, this RHP works quickly and doesn't give hitters a chance to get settled. He is consistently around the zone throwing strikes with both pitches. FB still sits in the low 70's as he pitches to contact - giving his defense a chance. He pounds the zone and works ahead in the count. More extension (towel drill) on his finish/follow through will help to improve effectiveness on all pitches. Luke has skills with still time to progress to get to where he wants to be.
