Scouting Report   

Sarmiento checks in with a filled out 6-foot-0 190 pound athletic frame. Personal best in the 60 has been a 7.37. Offensively- Even setup with feet just outside his shoulders; flat to slightly angled barrel with a short controlled load of the hands and stride for timing. Strong foundation; aggressive lower half with compact swing path. Accelerates through the zone with an elevated two-handed finish. High ceiling in the power department as he has shown the ability to drive the gaps. Exit velocity has been 85 MPH on multiple occasions. Defensively-  Showed a steady glove; approaches ball somewhat cautiously as he makes transition from middle of the diamond to the corners. Exhibits more of a middle infielders release with a quick snap throw; limited footwork (shuffle step). Would benefit from lengthening arm action and incorporating more of his body. Arm strength was down a notch at 70 MPH (73 at NY Games in June). This will improve with mentioned adjustments.


What to Expect

"Ethan has a full size corner infield frame. Defensively his glove is capable at 3B; would like to see him to continue to progress with his transfer and release and let a few throws go as there is more in the tank here. Power potential at the plate as evidenced by a strong showing at the NY Games and the NY All-Star Games on September 17th. Fits that middle of the order, corner infielder mold for the next level. Looking forward to following this 2019 grad over the next few years. "
