01/17/2020 - 2020 Baseball Factory All-America Pre-Season Rookie Tournament
Zachary is a coachable 1B/OF prospect who showed well during the All-America Pre-Season Rookie Tournament. In the field, Zachary starts on the balls of his feet and shows smooth footwork. He fields in a square position and makes a clean exchange. He gets rid of the ball quickly, keeping his throws accurate with life through his target. At the plate, this RHH sets up in an open stance with comfortable hands. He works to barrel up the baseball and sprays to all fields. Overall, Zachary is a solid prospect who has the time and potential to further develop his skills on the field.
10/13/2019 - National Tryout Plus - Hoover (Birmingham), AL
Zachary raised arm velocity to 70 MPH and showed a spike in hitting grades during his last workout in Hoover, AL. At 1B, Zachary has good agility to the ball, he keeps it in front of his body, and works the backhand well. He makes plays consistently, and has a long arm action to his target. On the mound, Zachary has good balance over the rubber and he separates his hands on time. He has a repeatable delivery, a controlled landing toward home plate, and he finishes in a complete position. Offensively, Zachary has a tall/open stance, he loads his hands well, and swings in good rhythm. He has a short/level swing, works the ball gap to gap, and uses his lower body. Hitting numbers improved to 38 and 40 during the workout.
07/21/2019 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 12-14)
Zachary is an athletic and talented 2024 2-way prospect that worked hard all week. At 1B, Zachary works off the bag well, he presents a low/early glove, and plays through the ball. He has good footwork to the ball and has a good arm. He makes good feeds on double plays and picks the ball well. He needs to continue to be on time with his prep step and improve his first step to the ball. At the plate, Zachary starts in an open stance and loads his hands back into the drive position. He creates backside drive with his lower half, he has a direct path to the ball, and looks to use the middle of the field. Zachary had several good AB's throughout the week. He still needs to continue to stay back on the ball and keep his top hand on the bat through contact. On the bump, Zachary attack hitter with his fastball and used his breaking ball for an out pitch. He separates on time, stays in line toward the plate with his stride, but he still needs to continue to work down hill in his delivery. Zachary has a project-able body and we hope to see his progress in the future.
