He's like the right handed version of Bryce Harper -- same kind of swing, but a little flat. Harper's swing is way more onto the ball and up, where this kids swing is kind of sloppy. I don't know, it looks as if he can't hit really anything other than a fastball.. see, when they throw him a cutter or something off speed, he'll ground out of foul it off.. like at 1:34.
But you see at 1:44 that it was a straight fastball and he crushed it.
Scouts will pick up on that easily.. and probably aren't going to draft hiim unless there willing to put some time into him.
Kinda reminds me of the movie 'Trouble with the Curve'.. I know JV saw it. The kids hands 'drift' on a curveball or anything off speed, but he can crush a fastball any day. The team ends up wasting their first pick on him only to find out that he can't hit a curveball for crap.
But anyway, this kid is pretty good, he just needs work on his swing. He does what I call 'dancing' in the box.. instead of finishing his swing.
I mean, look at his swing, he's basically running and hitting, not finishing his swing.
Still has potential though.
