10/16/2013 - Arizona Junior Fall Classic
Saunders showed well during his time in Arizona. In the OF, Mitchell attacks the ball aggressively, he reads it well off the bat, and he shows good body control. He has good glove actions, a free arm, and good accuracy to his target. Offensively, Mitchell has a good / level swing, he keeps his hands back, and he makes hard / solid contact. He has a middle of the field approach, and he hustles down the line.

Mitchell is a 6'/190 lbs OF/RHP that is a rising junior. In the outfield, the above average runner (7.18 sixty), covers the gaps with active feet and sure hands. He is aggressive to the ball and plays through to throw with carry. Offensively, he shows good balance, athleticism in the stance, a good swing path and strong lower. He has present pop, but needs to be cognitive of contact points - driving the ball to all fields. On the mound, Saunders competes with three pitches and a repeatable delivery. He tops out at 82 MPH with his fastball and throws a CB with 11/5 shape for strikes. In all, Saunders currently projects best in the OF, but is a competitor and will not hurt a club on the bump.
