Tristian continues to show improvements in baseball abilities with a promising future on the diamond. In the OF, he utilizes his feet well in taking proper routes / angles in tracking down balls, displaying clean hands. Defensive grade will continue to improve as he works to get behind balls to play through with momentum to his target. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, hitting grade has improved as well through a squared / balanced setup. Hands are loose and aggressive and works through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side. Hitting grade will continue to improve as he works to keep hands inside the ball, utilizing all fields. Power numbers will increase as he works to utilize his lower half more aggressively.

Tristan is a very coachable young player who plays OF/1B. Defensively he displayed a good pre-pitch position, consistent hands and a good exchange from fielding to throwing. He needs to be more aggressive to the ball, widen fielding position and long toss for arm strength. At the plate Tristan showed an aggressive approach, good bat speed and plus power. Improvement can be made by shortening stance, loading sooner and limiting body movement (especially with the head). Tristan is a good listener who genuinely wants to get better. If he continues to work hard and make adjustments he can be a good player in the future.
