01/15/2016 - Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament
Patrick is a 6'2/195 lbs OF that showed all of his best ability to date at the Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament with Baseball Factory. Offensively, he had a simple approach and got to a good hitting position, on-time with activated hands. He stayed inside the ball at contact and got good extension out over the front side. Defensively, he attacked the ball with efficient footwork and body control, making plays with a sure glove in front. He was light on his feet (7.13 sixty), and worked to stay through the play to gain momentum to throw to his targets with carry. In all - Patrick has a great baseball frame & explosiveness, and has shown time and time again an upward trend of growth to both his game and his athleticism.
12/27/2014 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City - Session 2
Patrick is a sophomore with an electric arm. Offensively, he really stays inside the ball well, allowing him to hit the ball all over the field with strength - especially to the opposite field. Starting his load sooner and getting his front foot down consistently on time will allow him generate additional strength when making contact. In the outfield, he showed a high 2 hand catch on fly balls and flashed life & accuracy on his throws. By consistently playing behind fly balls and not drifting, he will be more able to show the true athletic ability he has in the outfield. Overall - Patrick's ability shows improvement from previous outings and that upward trend is growth scouts admire in players.
