06/12/2023 - National Showcase - Troy (Albany), NY Branden is a SS who will graduate in 2029. A young/developing player with some strength present and plenty of room to add throughout. At 3B, he works to center the baseball and plays with good effort/energy. Works into a square fielding position with good glove actions and hands out front. Made on-line throws to first base consistently from a 3/4 arm slot with an arm velocity up to 55mph. At the plate he hits from an athletic and square stance. A simple setup to start and takes an aggressive swing. Keeps bat flat in the zone for a long time and made consistent contact. During his round of BP, he hit balls into both gaps with a bat exit velocity up to 60mph. With 6 years of continued growth and development, we foresee him having a bright future on the baseball field.
