09/13/2015 - Interactive Video Program - La Verne (Los Angeles), CA Tristan is a R/R 2-way player as a SS/RHP. Defensively in the MIF, he shows active footwork and gets into a square fielding position. He extends his glove out in front, funnels smoothly and can turn the DP efficiently. With the bat, Tristan shows a balanced setup with quiet/simple actions. He swings on a level path and drives the middle of the field. On the mound, this RHIP has a 3-pitch mix (FB, CB, CH) coming from an over the top arm slot and loose arm action. He gets to a tall balance point and stays directional toward the dish. FB ranges from 61-63 mph pounding the zone with strikes. Breaking ball has 10/4 shape while changeup shows slight cut. He has sound mechanics and repeats his delivery well.
