07/29/2008 - Under Armour Southwest Regional Tournament - 2008 Thrornton is solid in all areas of his game. He has a feel for contact and can hit to all fields. He stays on line to the pitcher and has a quiet load. He can improve at the plate by firming up his top hand and maintaining his bat angle a bit longer to the hitting zone. On defense, he creates angles and has a good preliminary move to the ball. His arm strength needs to improve some but he has enough for second base at this time. I would like to see him improve his foot speed(7.91)and footwork for fielding.
