12/27/2019 - Baseball Factory Winter Classic (Ages 12-14) Zachary is a coachable C/RHP prospect who worked hard on his skills during the Winter Classic. Behind the plate, Zachary presents a good target to the pitcher and tracks the ball into his glove. He makes a quick exchange and gains momentum well on his throws, keeping them on the 2B bag. He moves on time to block and covers up well. Sitting in a more athletic stance can help Zachary improve defensively. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a square stance with comfortable hands. He gets his hands activated in his load and drives through well with his lower half. He takes a level swing with decent bat speed, leading to consistent contact to his pull side. Zachary can improve as a hitter by working a smoother rhythm into his load. On the mound, Zachary is controlled gathering to his balance point and separates his hands on time. He works with a clean arm and stays inline towards the plate, finishing square to his target. Zachary shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 70mph. Breaking ball sits from 56-57mph with 11-5 break. Changeup sits from 60-61mph. Extending through his release can help Zachary improve as a pitcher. With four more years to develop, Zachary has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
