Zac has really improved his baseball abilities since the last time that we saw him. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now a solid 7.30 runner. He utilizes his quick feet well in working around balls and squaring up well while displaying clean hands. For defensive grade to continue to improve, he needs to play through balls more and present hands more out front. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate where he has improved the most, now showing solid average hitting and power grades. He shows an athletic setup with rhythm. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a level swing path. He works to stay inside the ball, utilizing all fields and shows a feel for the barrel with baseball jumping off the bat when centered.

Zac is a very solid young hitter, with very good upside. He has very quick hands, also they work well with the bat, allowing very good barrel action during the swing. Also Zac displays great extension through the contact point, allowing him to hit the baseball to all fields with some power. Zac has a short on plane swing, which gives him the ability to be a very good line drive hitter with consistent hard contact. Zac tends to be early with his contact, which causes him to drift his hips and chest forward during the swing. He needs to focus on letting the baseball travel into the hitting zone, this will limit his body movement, and help keep his chest back.

Zac is an athletic player with easy actions. In the field he does a good job reaching an athletic fielding position with his hands out in front. He has solid footwork on his routes and angles to the ball. Arm is accurate with good carry across the diamond. Zac can continue to work on being more of a vocal leader on the field especially being a shortstop. At the plate, Zac shows the ability to drive the ball from gap to gap. His lower half works well but could work on making sure he finishes with a firm front side. He front side tends to be soft which creates him to drift forward let the ball travel. Overall, Zac shows good rhythm through his game and makes things look natural in the field. He should be a special player next year in high school
