01/17/2014 - Baseball Factory Spring Training in Arizona (Ages 14-18) Spencer is a lean 3B that will graduate in 2016. At 3B, actions are smooth / clean as he plays under control. Feet are active as he works to square balls up, displays clean hands as he makes the routine plays. Defensive grade will continue to improve as he attacks balls more and presents hands more out front. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program and work to get rid of the baseball quicker. At the plate, he shows a squared / balanced setup. Hands are loose and works through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive type path, mainly to the pull side. Hitting grades will continue to improve as he works to keep hands inside the ball to utilize all fields. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to load more and transfer weight properly through his lower half. At the plate, he was 4 for 9. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a great attitude, is a hard worker, and is very coachable. With 3 years to further develop, Spencer has abilities with time and room to improve.
