10/08/2023 - National Showcase - Visalia, CA John is an athletic 6ft 1/180 1B/OF in the 2025 class. On the dirt, he shows solid pre-pitch movement and active feet. He centers his body to the baseball and flashed a quick glove. Uses a 3 qtr. slot and makes accurate fees to 2B on his turns. Working to sink his hips will allow his glove more freedom to make hop adjustments. On the grass, he stays behind the baseball and takes solid routes. Makes accurate throws to the cut-off and working to stay in his legs and stay direction will allow for further carry and accuracy to the bag. At the plate, he begins in a squared stance and gains a short stride. Shows quick hands (86 exit velo) and flashed pull side pop. Bat speed is explosive and working to shorten his swing will put his speed well into the 90 velo range. Overall, John is a gifted athlete and with one more year of development, he can blossom into a next level prospect.
