12/27/2018 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 14-18)
Zachary shined once again at the event in Pirate City. In the MIF, he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork as he works to square ground balls up. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. Throws are accurate with zip (84 mph velocity) across the diamond. At the plate, he continues to shine through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (85 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields and has strength in his swing with gap-to-gap pop. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable. Zachary has tools and will make an immediate impact at the next level.

Zachary showed nice improvements in his game during his last workout in Plano. He ran his best 60 time to date at 7.02 seconds and hitting spiked to a 50 grade. At SS, Zachary has athletic actions, fluid feet, and he fields in low/square position. He has good body control, makes plays, and throws with momentum and carry from a quick release.

Zachary also improved exit velocity to 88 MPH.

Zachary is an athletic OF/SS who has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed is well above average as indicated by his 60 time of 7.17. At the plate is where he shows best through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (83 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive approach. He shows a feel for the barrel and stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. In the OF, he displays smooth / clean actions. He utilizes his feet well in tracking down balls through proper routes / angles. He needs to work to get behind balls and play through with momentum to his target. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. At SS, he displays smooth / clean actions. Feet are active and he displays proper footwork but needs to play through balls more with his body. Glove action is soft but needs to present more out front. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. With 2 years to further develop, Zachary has potential with time and room to progress his game.
