01/18/2013 - Baseball Factory National Spring Training at Pirate City Yianni is a big, solid, 3rd baseman who will graduate in 2014. Defensively, Yianna has sure hands, playable feet, and he presents his glove well. He fields in a low position, moves well laterally, and throws with accuracy from a loose arm action. Not patting his glove and adding arm strength can help defensive grades improve. At the plate, Yianni is a strong hitter with a solid set-up, and a proper load. He works the count into his favor and makes consistent / solid contact. A looser front leg, more smooth actions, and more lower 1/2 will improve hitting numbers.
