12/27/2009 - Christmas Camp and Tournament #2 Rob is a young, 2-way player, with a tall, lean body. He plays both RHP and 1B, and showed improvement at 1B during his time at Pirate City. Defensively, Rob is an athletic fielder that makes the routine plays. His arm works well and given his size, has the ability to further mature into a complete First Baseman. Rob will need to work on speed and agility as this young, 2012 grad grows. On the mound, Rob hides the ball well and pitches to contact. He stays closed in his delivery and does a nice job holding runners on base. With added velocity and further development of his CB, Rob has potential to improve on the hill. At the plate Rob improved both his hitting and power numbers from 38 to 40. He has okay balance and bat speed and makes a lot of contact. Rob will need to loosen up his swing and incorporate his lower 1/2 for hitting to further improve.
