01/16/2015 - Baseball Factory Spring Training in Arizona (Ages 14-18) Robert is a lean 2B that will graduate in 2016. At 2B, actions are smooth / clean as he plays under control. Feet are active as he works to square balls up, displays clean hands as he makes the routine plays. He shows off his athletic abilities on his feeds / turns of the double play. Defensive grade will continue to improve as he attacks balls while presenting hands more out front and increases foot quickness. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows a squared / balanced setup. Hands are loose and works through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact and is a good situational hitter. Hitting grades will continue to improve as he works to keep hands inside the ball to utilize all fields. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to load more and transfer weight properly through his lower half. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a great attitude, is a hard worker, and is very coachable. Robert has abilities with time and room to improve.
