Sam is an athletic, 2-way player who will graduate in 2014. Defensively, Sam has sure hands, active footwork, and he works behind the ball well. He fields athletically, plays through the ball, and he throws with life to his target. On the mound, Sam has a long arm action, a controlled balance point, and level shoulders. He has good direction toward home, finishes completely, and is in the zone with his pitches. Staying tall and working on his CH will help mound effectiveness improve. Offensively, Sam has a square set-up, a level swing, and he can work the ball gap to gap. He uses his lower 1/2, and can improve by letting the ball travel and with better timing.
