01/17/2014 - Baseball Factory Spring Training in Arizona (Ages 14-18) Manny continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date but will benefit by continuing to increase foot quickness. At the plate, power numbers have really improved, now showing as outstanding through an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through a fluid swing path. He shows a feel for the barrel with baseball exploding off the bat when centered. At 1B, he is a quality receiver, displaying proper footwork around the bag. Defensive grade will continue to improve as he softens hands and presents hands more out front. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude and works hard tobe the best player he can be.
