02/12/2021 - Baseball Factory Opening Day Classic (HS - West)
Zachary is an athletic (5'10"/150) two-way prospect (RHP/2B) in the class of 2021. On the mound, he uses a three-pitch mix with a good feel for his offspeed pitches. FB ranges 70-74, CB has 11-5 shape with good break, and CH has deceptive FB arm speed. He commands the bottom of the zone well with all three pitches and tries to work ahead in the count. At 2B, he starts in a relaxed/ready position using a smooth glove to make all routine plays. He creates a quick/clean exchange allowing him to release the ball quickly. Throws are accurate from a 3/4 arm slot. At the plate, this righty shows comfortable hands with simple/repeatable hitting mechanics. He works through his lower half to generate power and spray the ball toward the center of the field (exit velo = 85 mph). Mental makeup is a plus as he plays the game with good energy/body language and stays engaged. Zachary is a hard working prospect and we look forward to watching him compete in the future.

Zachary is a R/R SS who has upside. Defensively, he displays active prep footwork and moves well into a square fielding position. Hands are presented out front as he gathers smoothly and has a clean transfer to throw. Working through the ball and gaining more ground toward his target at 1B will help to get even more into his throws. With the bat, this RHH displays an athletic setup with rhythm to load. Swing is level to and through the zone as he connects and hits line-drives back up the middle of the field. Working to engage his full lower 1/2 will help to tap into more power potential. This 2021 grad is a few adjustments away from unlocking his potential on the diamond.
