12/20/2013 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City Mercer continues to show in the OF, showing potential both offensively and defensively. At the plate is where he continues to show best through an athletic setup. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a level swing path. He works to stay inside the ball and shows a feel for the barrel with baseball jumping off the bat when centered as he displays strength in his swing. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. At the event, he was 1 for 6 with a HR. In the OF, he utilizes his quick / athletic feet well in taking proper first steps in tracking down balls through proper routes / angles. Actions are smooth / clean as he works to get behind balls and plays through well with momentum to his target. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program and raise arm slot to improve arm grade. Mental makeup is a plus as he plays hard and is very coachable as he works to be the best player he can be.
