05/14/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Tampa, FL Yadiel is a tall, SS/RHP who will graduate in 2021. Defensively in the infield, he shows a good prep presenting his hands out in front. He works around the GB, has a quick exchange and fires the ball from multiple arm slots. On the hill, this RHP keeps his eyes on target and delivers from a 3/4 arm slot. He gets to a strong balance point, uses his lower 1/2 and throws a 3-pitch mix. With the stick, Yadiel tracks pitches well into the zone. He looks to do damage as he drives pitches with hard contact to his pull side. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.
Defense 1. Get more square on GB's 2. Lateral quickness 3. Play through the ball Pitching 1. Pound zone with strikes 2. Stronger frontside 3. Loose arm action Offense 1. Develop a load 2. Lower 1/2 drive 3. Level out swing path
