11/08/2018 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 14-18) Tristan is an athletic and talented 2022 2-way prospect. At SS, Tristan is on time with his prep step, he presents a low early glove, and has good footwork on his backhands. He creates momentum in his lower half and follows through on his throws. He needs to funnel the ball and have a clean exchange. At the plate, Tristan starts in an open stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and stays balanced through contact. He creates backside rotation with his lower half and hits the ball gap to gap. He needs to continue to minimize his leg kick and attack the inside part of the ball. On the bump, Tristan gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and extends thru his delivery. He drives his back leg toward the plate but needs to continue to work north to south in his delivery. He cuts his fastball and has good depth on his breaking ball. Tristan has a high baseball IQ up the middle and works hard to make adjustments at the plate. Tristan will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
