04/27/2008 - College PREP - Stockton, CA Mitch is a young player who is tall and strong. At 3B, Mitch has great hands and athletic actions. He gets to his fielding position quickly and has a good feel for the slow roller. His release could get a little quicker. Currently he crow hops a little to throw, but he is a solid defender. At the plate, Mitch has bat speed and good use of the lower half. His hands are quick to the ball and he remains balanced throughout the swing. He tends to bar his arm which creates a longer than desired swing. Keeping the front elbow bent until contact will help to shorten bat path.
