01/15/2018 - College PREP - Omaha, NE Tate is an athletic 2-way prospect. At 1B, Tate has an active prep step and creates angles to the ball. He has good bag awareness and picks the ball well. On the bump, Tate has a free arm action and extends through his target. His breaking ball shows good life and he commands the bottom half of the zone with all three pitches. At the plate, Tate starts in a tall stance and loads his hands back into the launch position. He keeps a quiet head and has fast hands to the ball. Tate will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
