12/20/2018 - Baseball Factory Winter Classic - Session 1 (Ages 12-14) Sam is a coachable 2B/RHP prospect who worked hard on his skills during his time at the Winter Classic. In the field, Sam shows efficient footwork and fields in an athletic position. He makes a two-handed exchange and gains momentum well on his throws, getting good carry through his target. Increasing his lateral range can help Sam improve defensively. At the plate, this RHH sets up in an open stance and is fluid getting into a simple load. He takes a short swing with decent bat speed, leading to consistent contact. Sam can improve as a hitter by taking a square stride. On the mound, Sam gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He works with a clean arm and stays inline towards the plate. His fastball tops out at 63mph. Finishing with his chest over his front knee can help Sam improve as a pitcher. With six more years to develop, Sam has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
