Tony continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now a 7.04 runner. In the OF, he displays smooth / fluid actions. He takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. Feet are active as he works to get behind balls but needs to play through with momentum to his target. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. He moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows an open setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. Hitting grades will improve as he gets stride foot down sooner to work on time.
