08/23/2023 - National Showcase - Trenton, NJ Declan is an athletic 2B in the 2024 class. In the field, he covers his defensive area well and proves to make the routine play look routine. His actions from field to throw are clean and arm works quick. Uses a 3qtr slot to make accurate feeds with carry (76 velo). Working out in front of his body with lower hips will assist on hop adjustments. At the plate, he begins in an athletic and squared stance with a slight crouch. Stride is short and stays sideways to the dish. Timing is smooth and stays balanced inside his feet. Path is level and barrel is short and direct to the ball. Creates consistent contact and shows a line drive approach. Using more of a hand load will increase power and bat speed. We look forward to seeing what the future holds with Declan as he enters his senior year.
