07/03/2019 - Under Armour Firecracker Classic 18U, powered by Baseball Factory's Team One Preston continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. In the OF, defensive abilities are now well above average as he displays smooth / fluid actions. Feet are active as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind and plays through with momentum to his target. Throws are accurate with accuracy on line zip (86 mph velocity). Range will increase as he improves his foot speed. At the plate, hitting / power potential has improved through a squared setup. Hands are quick (82 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. On the mound, arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date at 80 mph. Fastball showed a range of 68-70 mph. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup showing a feel for pitch with tailing action. Control is well above average as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Getting on a long toss program to develop more arm strength will aid in improving abilities on the mound.
