Sid showed well in his most recent outing with Baseball Factory. Defensively, he projects himself as a 1B'man with good footwork at and around the bag.

At the plate, he has an aggressive approach with tons of power. Recognizing pitches, getting his hands through on the inside pitch and keeping his shoulders level will only help his swing. Sid shows an advanced feel for hitting and by using all fields more he will impress college coaches all around the nation.

Defensively, he showed as an OF with good ability to field the ball in front and throw with a clean arm stroke. He has some tuning up to do with the glove and arm slot, but his bat can play. All in all - at 6'1/230 lbs, Sid has good projection as a corner guy with pop at the next level.

He will be a run producer with his ability to punish the ball. Defensively, he worked out in the OF for the first time. He takes good routes/angles and works into position behind the fly-ball.

01/17/2014 - Under Armour Pre-Season All-America Tournament
Sid showed for the first time at 1B at the event. At the plate is where he continues to show best through an open / athletic setup. Hands are quick, generating bat speed through a level swing path. Barrel accuracy is a plus with baseball exploding off the bat, displaying outstanding power numbers. At the event, he was 3 for 4 with a 2B. At 1B, he displays proper footwork around the bag and is a big quality receiver, displaying clean hands. Defensive grade will continue to improve as he increases foot quickness and attack balls more with his feet. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program.

In all, Sid is a great kid that works very hard and has potential to play at the next level either as a C, or a 1B with his ability to hit.
