01/16/2017 - College PREP - Auburndale (Tampa), FL Tad is a tall, athletic 1B who will graduate in 2017. Foot speed is solid as indicated by his 60 time of 7.39. At 1B, defensive abilities are solid as he displays smooth / clean actions. He utilizes his outstanding body well as he displays proper footwork around the bag and is a quality receiver. Glove action is soft / sure but will benefit by presenting more out front. He moves well laterally showing good range. Throws are accurate through a clean exchange but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate he shows an open setup. Hands are quick (80 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive approach. He has strength in his swing and makes consistent contact with power showing best to the pull side. Power will continue to improve as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. Tad has a lot of potential with time and room to continue to progress his game.
