01/20/2014 - College PREP - Omaha, NE
Mitchell continues to show well on the diamond. Offensively, this lefty delivers the barrel to and through the zone quickly. He drives his lower 1/2 and crushes the ball on a line. At 1B, he shows good prep and works around the ground ball. He moves well laterally and hustles to get into a square fielding position. On the mound, Mitchell works to a tall balance point and works in-line toward the dish. He maintains smooth rhythm as he works at his pace. Increased arm strength will help improve effectiveness on all pitches. Savine is a solid all-around player who should find success on the diamond.
