By Drew Locascio
Illinois Scouting Director

As we dig through the players and numbers from this past winter, we are taking a look at a "Progress Report" feature that highlights players that have shown significant improvement in their game; whether it's on the mechanical end, performance wise, physicality or in the measurable statistic department. The "Progress Report" can be a minor improvement in recent months or a substantial transformation over time. Today we take a look at:

What Did We See? 
In a span of six months, Hailstone improved in every statistical category. He trimmed .26 seconds off his 60 times, added three mph to his infield velocity and five to his exit velocity. Hailstone has a wide-shouldered, strong frame and a potent enough right-handed bat that could profile him at third base moving forward or as an offensive second baseman. Hailstone swings with controlled aggression, is consistently on the barrel and he flashes pull-side power. 


Stay tuned over the next couple of months as we will continue to check-in on prospects throughout the state of Illinois who have made noticeable improvements to their games.
