01/18/2013 - Arizona National Spring Training Joe is a SS with potential as a 2015 graduate. As a shortstop he is aggressive to the ball with good instincts. At the ball Joe is solid, fielding the ball cleanly with a good set-up but could get lower in his fielding position and work his hands through the ball more. He throws from a 3/4 arm slot with a short arm action. If Joe smoothed out his arm action he could get more life on his throws. At the plate Joe is low and square in his setup with a solid load and square stride. By using his lower half more and adding some rhythm to his swing he would drive the ball more consistently. Like most young players Joe would benefit from speed/agility training as well as a strength program involving consistent long toss. With work and time Joe will continue to get better.
