Steven continues to show improvements on the mound. Arm strength has improved as he threw his best velocity to date, topping out at 87 mph. Fastball showed a range of 81-87 mph with slight arm side run. Breaking ball has improved, now showing as a quality out pitch at the next level. Command / control are a plus as he throws strikes with all his pitches. He has an upside on the mound.

Steven is a tall, thin, RHP who will graduate in 2013. On the mound, Steven has a loose arm action, a controlled balance point, and good glove tuck. He keeps his eyes on his target, he keeps his shoulders level, and he has good direction toward home. Steven hides the ball well, he attacks the zone, and he shows good potential for the future. More lower body explosion and sharpening his off-speed can help abilities on the mound get better. At the plate, Steven has a tall / square set-up, a short / square stride, and average bat speed. He has good barrel accuracy, he can spray to all fields, and he uses his lower 1/2. Hitting can get better with a looser grip, letting the ball travel, and with better timing.
