12/27/2010 - UA Recruiting Classic - 2010 Stephen is a young two-way player at 2B plus on the mound with a lean, athletic frame that shows projection as he continues to physically mature. Currently, he projects best at 2B for the next level. Foot speed is near average as he will benefit by getting on a speed / agility program to improve foot quickness for the MIF. Feet are active as he moves well laterally, displaying range. He shows a low to high approach in coming to get and playing through ground balls with his body. Feet and hands work well together as he gets rid of the baseball quickly with throws showing accuracy but he must get on a long toss program to aid in further developing more arm strength and carry. Offensively, Gouse shows a balanced approach with hands working directly to the baseball. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed as he shows a solid feel for the barrel. Power numbers will improve as he learns to utilize his lower half more efficiently through the swing. With 2 years to further develop, Stephen has abilities with time and room to improve.
