07/29/2014 - Under Armour Southwest Championships, powered by Baseball Factory's Team One
Peter once again showed he is a very coachable player who brings his all to the field. On the mound, he works to stay on top and work downhill off of the rubber. He commands the zone and can spot up well. He doesn't get rattled, maintains his composure and takes it one hitter at a time. Breaking ball shows 12/6 shape with sharp break and proves to be good out pitch. Increased velocity will come as he uses more of his lower 1/2 to drive off of the rubber. With the bat, Peter steps into the box looking to hit. He hits the ball where it's pitched and has the ability to drive it to all parts of the field. This athlete projects well and should make an impact on the diamond.

In Peter's latest event with Baseball Factory, he showed strong in all categories. At first base, he communicates well, gets in a low fielding position and throws accurately. Cleaning up his footwork around the bag, and picking through short-hops will increase his defensive ability. At the dish, he has a good setup and smooth load. His bat path is clean and he stayed strong up the middle throughout the week. Working on having better timing and more balance will help his consistency, offensively. On the mound, he threw his fastball with arm side run and for consistent strikes. His 11/5 curve-ball was effective, but he had a tough time throwing it for strikes and staying on top. In all, Peter is a coachable, passionate player that will continue to improve and projects well on the mound.

Peter is a tall, solid, 2-way player who pitches and plays 1B. On the mound, Peter has a loose arm, tall balance point, and on-time separation. He repeats his delivery, his shoulders are level, and he lands in a square position. More lower 1/2 explosion and sharper off-speed will improve mound effectiveness. At 1B, Peter is aggressive to the ball, he keeps it in front, and throws with accuracy to his target. Fielding further out in front and not stabbing at the ball will improve fielding. At the plate, Peter has an athletic set-up, good balance, and he makes hard contact. He can work the ball gap to gap and he uses his lower 1/2. Looser actions and better timing will help hitting rise.
