Coaches Comments:
Graham is a lean, athletic, 1B/2B/3B who has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed is above average as indicated by his 60 time of 6.81 (Rhodes College Showcase 10.22.16) . At the plate is where he shows best, displaying outstanding hitting / power potential through an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through a level / aggressive swing path. He shows a feel for the barrel and works to stay inside the ball, flashing gap to gap pop. He has strength in his swing with the baseball exploding off the bat when centered. At 2B, defensive abilities are well above average, displaying smooth, fluid actions. He moves well laterally displaying range and shows a solid backhand. He shows off his athletic abilities on his feeds of the double play. Glove action is soft / sure as he presents well out front. Hands / feet work well together as he gets rid of the baseball quickly with accuracy on his throws. Graham has the makings of a special type player and will get looks from the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.
