01/21/2024 - National Showcase - Houston, TX Brayden is an athletic SS/OF who has a promising future on the diamond. At SS, defensive abilities are solid as he shows smooth/fluid actions. Feet are active as he attacks ball and plays through with his body. Glove action is soft/sure and presents well out front. Hands/feet work well through the fielding process. In the OF, he takes proper routes/angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he continues to shine through a tall, squared setup. Hands are quick (80 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path, displaying a strong top hand. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. With 2 1/2 years to further develop, Brayden has a lot of potential with time and room to progress his game.
