06/02/2013 - College PREP - River Forest (Chicago), IL Tino is a SS/OF who has a small and athletic build. Defensively at SS, he maintains active footwork, has good pre-pitch movements and works into a low fielding position. He shows good lateral quickness and can make the backhand play in the hole. In the OF, Tino shows aggressiveness and works to get behind the fly ball. He plays through the ball and gives accurate throws to his target. A long toss program will help to increase arm strength and benefit his all-around defensive play. At the plate, Abarca has a simple/middle of the field approach and good setup. He maintains balance throughout his swing and gets his lower 1/2 through, helping to create some pop off of his barrel. Looser actions will help to increase bat speed and increase power at the plate. As a 2014 grad, Tino still has time to fine tune his skills in preparation for his senior year.
