06/24/2022 - Baseball Factory Select Training at the College World Series (MS) Gatlin showed a spike in offensive numbers and raised his exit velocity to 65 MPH during his last workout. At 1B, Gatlin is a good sized target, he plays on the balls of his feet, and he keeps the ball in front of his body. He presents well, fields out in front, and throws with a clean arm action with accuracy to his target. Offensively, Gatlin has a tall/square stance, activated hands, and a level swing plane. He has a consistent barrel, good hand-eye coordination, and he works the ball well gap to gap.
