03/27/2022 - Official Player Development Membership - Bronx , NY Roman returned to Baseball Factory in the Bronx as we saw him on the mound and at 1B. At 1B, he shows smooth/fluid actions. He displays proper footwork around the bag. Hands are clean but needs to present more out front. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. At the plate he shows a crouched setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. Hitting grade will continue to improve as he works to get stride foot down sooner to work on time. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 54-55 mph. Breaking ball displays 3/9 shape with across break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup tailing action. Stock on the mound will improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. We look forward to seeing what the future holds for Roman as he finishes up his 8th grade year.
