NJ Games Announcement: 2018 OF Anthony Galason (Jersey Shore Team)



 

Battle at the Border (October 18, 2015)

The 2018 outfield prospect showed much of the same stuff offensively; big hacks, big exit velocity (90 MPH), and an aggressive approach. He is best when he sees it deep when on the outer half and reacts to the ball on the inner half. When he has a dead pull mentality, he struggles. Defensively, he gets good jumps, has good instincts, and runs well. He does, at times, struggle with reads in but he has good recovery skills.

NJ Underclass Games (September 20, 2015)

 Galason continues to prove that he has the makeup to play at the next level. Each time I’ve seen him, he’s improved. He had explosive BP; driving many balls to his pull side. His swing plane continues to smoothen out and he continues to harness his aggressiveness more and more. I originally doubted his ability to control the stick but he has put an end to that thought. He covers range in the outfield as he has a good first step. His throws were online and his throwing mechanics have been cleaned up. He showed much better approach steps in the infield but I would still like to see him follow his throws better. On the mound, his accomplishes some good pelvic loading and riding of his back hip down the mound but it is also the reason for the open stride at this point. He has gradually learned how to control the effort levels and continues to smoothen out. His fastball had some sink to it at 78-81 miles-per-hour and his changeup was very effective as it mimicked his fastball in arm speed and spin. His breaking ball has depth potential and is sharp at times.
