11/05/2023 - National Showcase - Parker (Denver), CO Joshua is a tall, strong 1B who has a promising future on the diamond. At 1B, defensive abilities are solid as he displays smooth / clean actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork around the bag and he is a quality receiver. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. Range will increase as he continues to improve foot quickness. Throws are accurate with carry (84 mph velocity) to his target. At the plate, he continues to shine displaying well above average hitting abilities with outstanding power potential through an open setup. Hands are quick (92 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. Lower half works well with an aggressive hip turn. With 2 years to further develop, Joshua has a lot of potential and will get looks from the collegiate coaches as he continues to progress his game.
