01/18/2019 - Baseball Factory Spring Training in Arizona (Ages 12-14) Ronan is an athletic and hardworking 2024 2-way prospect with high energy. At the hot corner, Ronan fields the ball in an athletic position and makes accurate throws from multiple arm angles. He needs to continue to be on time with his prep step, present a low/early glove, and have a clean exchange. Continuing to build arm strength through a throwing program and improving his first step to the ball will elevate his game on the infield. At the plate, Ronan starts in a closed stance, gets his front foot down on time, and shows the ability to create pull side lift. He tracks the ball well but needs to continue to load his hands back into the drive position and attack the inside part of the ball. Creating backside drive with his lower half and keeping his head down at contact will allow him to stay balanced throughout the swing. On the bump, Ronan is a strike thrower and commands the bottom part of the plate. He gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and has a loose arm action. Ronan was eager to learn and we hope to see his progress in the future.
