01/18/2019 - 2019 Baseball Factory All-America Pre-Season Rookie Tournament
Xavier is a hardworking and athletic 2023 2-way prospect that showed leadership skills on and off the field. At SS, Xavier is on time with his prep step, he presents a low/early glove, and has a quick first step to the ball. He has good hands and a quick release on double plays. He has range on both sides of the glove and throws from multiple arm angles. At the plate, Xavier starts in an open stance, loads his hands back, and hits the ball to all fields. He hit 1.000 on the weekend going 3-3 with 2 HBP and 1 BB. He shows a middle approach and has good pitch recognition. On the bump, Xavier attacks hitters inside with his fastball, he has tight spin on his curveball, and throws an incredible changeup. He gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and works north to south in his delivery. Xavier will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
12/27/2017 - Baseball Factory Winter Classic - Session 2 (Ages 12-14)
Xavier is a lean, athletic SS/RHP who has a promising future on the diamond. At SS, he displays smooth / fluid actions. Feet are active / aggressive as he takes good first steps in attacking the baseball. Glove action is soft / clean but needs to present more out front. He shows off his athletic abilities on his feeds / turns of the double play. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. At the plate, he continues to shine through a tall setup. Hands are quick and work through a compact swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he adds overall body strength. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 65-66 mph. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and plays the game hard. With 6 years to further develop, Xavier has a lot of potential with time and room to progress his game.
