9/22/19

 

The 2021 dual player had a good showing at the 2019 Fall Top Prospect Games. At the plate, the right handed hitter stands in the box in a tall stance. Quick direct path to the baseball. Frankie gets full extension after the point of contact and stays balanced throughout the swing. Defensively, displayed active footwork. Smooth funnel actions and quick release from a high ¾ arm slot. On the mound, the right handed pitcher displayed a repeatable delivery. Impressive outing during live game actions. Delivery has tempo and comes right at you. Plus FB command down in the zone which peaked at 82 MPH. CB has sharp late break and ranged from 72-74 MPH. The 2021 graduate is a must follow.
