11/15/2018 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 12-14) Luke is an athletic and talented 2024 2-way prospect. In the OF, Luke is aggressive on ground balls and creates angles to the ball. He tries to work behind fly balls. He needs to continue to work on his first step quickness and anticipating balls off the bat. At the plate, Luke starts in a closed stance, gets his front foot down on time, and has good rhythm to the ball. He starts in a wide base and shows the ability to hit the ball to the pull side. Luke needs to attack the inside part of the ball, create backside rotation with his lower half, and have a middle approach. He needs to stay aggressive on the fastball and use the whole field. On the bump, Luke gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and finds a balance point. He consistently throws strikes with his fastball, but developing a secondary pitch such as a changeup will elevate his game. Luke was eager to learn and willing to make adjustments. He will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
