Sebastian is a lean RHP/2B who has a promising future on the diamond. At 2B, defensive abilities are solid as he displays smooth / athletic actions. Feet are active as he works around balls and plays through with his body. Hands / feet work well together through the fielding process. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. At the plate he continues to shine through a tall setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He works to stay inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 70-74 mph on a downhill plane with tailing action. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with sharp break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with tailing action. Off speed stuff show as quality pitches that will get outs. Control is solid as throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Sebastian has potential and will get looks from the collegiate coaches as he continues to progress his game.
