Lean body; will mature physically, but not a frame that will experience a physical explosion; athletic body, with fast twitch reactions; presently not overly explosive; wiry; will need to focus on strength training to withstand rigors of the long season.
Lowell Spinners (Short Season, Red Sox)
Energetic player; seems to soak up coaching and instruction; plays the game with some passion; projects maturity for age.
35; org player
More of a sweeping/slash type swing; on the flat side; controls head of the bat; does over-swing at times and come out of shoes; quick hands; flashes ability to pull hands in and shoot ball hard up-the-middle/other way; lack of present strength hinders pulling pitches with authority - tends to lunge and try to rake; shows makings of developing an approach and understanding of what is being thrown at him; opens early/back-side caves against stuff with break; growth tied into learning to stay back more and use hands; contact hitter potential.
Well below-average present raw; power will not be a part of player's game; potential to develop some gap power, and use speed to stretch hits; drives lack carry - die once getting out of infield; single digit home run potential.
4.12-4.15 down the line digging for bag; accelerates well on the turn; easily runs first-to-third and scoring on hit from second; not much present feel for stealing bases - in the infancy stages of reading pitchers; potential to push forward that aspect of game with dedication and swipe bags.
Smooth actions at short; fluid movements; agile; quick feet around the bag; shows balance and natural feel for controlling body; above-average range, but a tad slow with reads; soft glove and hands; will rush things presently in the field; can throw on the run; capable of adding positions to resume - second base and outfield; defensive potential is biggest present asset.
Adjusts arm angle depending on the play; has enough arm to throw over-the-top across the diamond with steam from deeper in the hole; arm strength doesn't wow, but should continue to play; displays solid accuracy for age; sets feet before throwing; throws on a line when throwing on the run.
Draw here is multiple defensive position potential and potential contact ability; shows the makings of being able to handle short into the upper levels; raw offensively; lack of strength and whether enough can be added is concern for offensive game; shows some feel for hitting; does not look over-matched against more experienced competition; grind of season will take toll; long way to go developmentally, but see utility/bench player potential with the prospect.
