08/27/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Glendale (Milwaukee), WI Preston is a SS/RHP who will graduate in 2022. Defensively at SS, he takes a prep step with active feet and gets into a square fielding position on GB's. He has a clean transfer and fires throws accurately to his target. On the mound, this RHP gathers over the rubber with a 3-pitch mix. He deceives hitters as he hides the ball well and keeps his FB down in the zone. With the stick, Preston tracks pitches with a quiet head. He takes aggressive hacks through the zone and looks to drive the ball back up through the middle of the field. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.
Defense 1. Lateral quickness 2. Be on time 3. Develop soft hands Pitching 1. Deliver more strikes 2. Lower 1/2 drive off rubber 3. Arm strength (long toss) Offense 1. Develop a load 2. Improve bat speed 3. Level out swing path
