Joe is a young 2022 RHP/1B prospect from New Hampshire. On the mound, Joe is very competitive and had several efficient innings. If he continues to have good tempo, stay balanced over the rubber, become directional toward the plate, and drive off his back leg, he will improve his overall ability as a pitcher. As a 1B, stays down on the ball, has a clean exchange, and is aggressive off the bag. At the plate, Joe has a simple stance, good balance, smart approach, and uses his lower half. If he continues to stay short to the ball, having a strong front side and create more rhythm in his swing, he will increase his ability to hit with power to all fields. Joe is a well-mannered player and was very popular with the staff. We hope to see his progress in the future.
