Pitching: Worked exclusively from the stretch, leg raise past belt, hip turn, short stride, full arm action through the back, and threw from a three quarter arm slot. Extension down the mound with a slight effort at release. Hid the ball well with slight crossfire action. Worked effectively down in the zone. Repeated well and was around the zone generating lots of ground ball contact. Showed a curveball with short break and 11/5 shape. Changeup showed fade down in the zone with good spin.
Hitting: Started with a wide base, tall stance, high hand set, and a deeper hand load. Swing primarily worked through hands with quickness through the zone. Inside out approach at the plate with an opposite field oriented swing. Developing bat with a longer path. Would improve at the plate with additional lower half incorporation.
