12/01/2019 - National Tryout Plus - Sacramento , CA
Steven showed nice all around improvements in his game during his last workout with The Factory. Arm velocity increased to 64 MPH, exit velocity to 67 MPH, as well as defensive and offensive numbers spiked. At SS, Steven has solid all around actions, active feet, and he fields the ball squarely. He has a presentable glove, fields out in front of his body, and funnels well; throwing with momentum to his target. Offensively, Steven has a crouched stance, good balance, and fast bat speed. He has a direct barrel, gets good extension through, and hits from a firm lower body. Steven is a solid all around player who will only get better.
07/16/2019 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 12-14)
Steven is a lean, athletic 2B/RHP who has a promising future on the diamond. At 2B, feet are active / aggressive as he attacks balls and plays through a low approach. Hands / feet work well together through the fielding process. Range will improve as he increases foot quickness. At the plate he shows a squared, crouched setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. Power will increase as he works to utilize his lower half more aggressively. At the event, he was 3 for 8. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 57-59 mph. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with loose spin and gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with tailing action. Getting on a long toss program to develop more arm strength will aid in improving abilities on the mound. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and plays the game hard. With 5 years to further develop, Steven has a lot of potential with time and room to progress his game.
