11/08/2012 - Baseball Factory Training & Competition at Pirate City Ty is an athletic 2B/OF that will graduate in 2016. He showed improvements with his arm, bat, and defense since we first saw him this past summer. At 2B, his feet are active and he works to square balls up while displaying clean hands through fluid actions. He needs to play through balls more, increase foot speed, and present hands more out front to continue to improve defensive grade. In the OF, he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls but needs to work on getting behind more to play through and improve defensive grade. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, Reini shows a balanced setup and solid approach. He is aggressive with hands attacking ball through a level swing path and he shows solid barrel accuracy. For hitting grades to continue to improve, he needs to work to through the ball at contact. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more through the swing and increases overall body strength. Mental makeup is a plus as he plays hard through a positive approach and is very coachable. With 4 years to further develop, Ty is going to be a player to watch - he can flat out play!
