12/20/2018 - Baseball Factory Winter Classic - Session 1 (Ages 12-14)
Nathan is a coachable SS/RHP prospect who worked hard on his skills during his time at the Winter Classic. In the field, Nathan makes the routine plays and flashes the ability to finish. He throws from a 3/4 angle and keeps his throws accurate across the diamond. Getting into a lower fielding position can help Nathan improve defensively. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a relaxed stance and takes a controlled stride. He shows a good rhythm getting into a simple load and hits from a strong front side. He works to barrel up the baseball and drives to his pull side. Nathan can improve as a hitter by driving his lower half more. On the mound, Nathan starts with a simple rock step and gathers to a balance point over the rubber. He separates his hands on time and works with a clean arm, staying inline towards the plate. His fastball sits from 55-60mph. Extending through more on his release can help Nathan improve as a pitcher. With four more years to develop, Nathan has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
