11/11/2010 - Pirate City Select Training
Unique showed improvements in his game during his time in Pirate City. He lowered his 60 time from 7.48 to 7.41, and improved both his arm and fielding grades. He made some very nice defensive plays during game play, and used his speed well. Unique makes accurate throws with some carry to his target. He needs reps on ground balls and fly balls in order to continue to improve defensive numbers. Offensively, Unique is a contact hitter who can hit to all fields. He went 1 for 5 at the event with 2 walks. He didn't show much power in game play, and will need to improve pitch selection, and add physical strength in order to improve hitting numbers.
08/21/2010 - College PREP - Purchase, NY
Unique is a young, lean, athletic, OF that will graduate in 2012. Defensively, Unique has life in his feet and he makes plays on balls hit his way. He tracks the ball and his lower 1/2 works well. Unique squares his body to his target and throws with some accuracy. If Unique can use more lower 1/2 and improve his accuracy to his target, defensive numbers should spike. At the plate, Unique has some balance and a level swing path. He puts the ball in play and shows some barrel accuracy. He will need to add strength, and have more direct hands to the ball for offensive grades to improve.
