Jaxon Valdez: 

 

Strong frame at 6’0” 170. Starts with high hands at the plate and weight on the back foot, about 60/40 ratio. Moves even more weight back upon loading before transferring linearly towards the pitcher at footstrike. Excellent spine angle is created, allowing for ability to square the ball the all fields, with some power potential to right-center (85.6 Max Exit Velo). Strength could be added to lower half for additional force generation and stability. Quiet hands in the infield, look comfortable fielding the ball. Decent approach footwork in the outfield. Decent carry on the ball in both spots, but could benefit from additional shoulder mobility. Motion on the mound is split with a quick leg lift, a paus, and a quick descent. Uses high ¾’s arm slot and works down hill, Fastball/Slider mix. Could benefit from additional scapular retraction in delivery.

Jaxon Valdez, Higley (AZ), 2025

Positional Profile: 3B/2B
Body: 5-foot-11, 165-pounds. Good base, room for physical development.
Hit: LHH. Square to pitcher, base just outside of shoulder width, slight bend in the knees. Bat held above shoulder about ear height, with back elbow slightly raised.  Sinks into back leg with load and weight is on back side. Lower half is engaged, back foot comes off the ground at contact during weight transfer to front side. Swing is short with an inside path to the ball.
Power: 84.26 max exit velocity, averaged 74.74 mph. 264’ max distance. High % of line drive contact. Ball comes off the bat with true carry to all fields. With strength and size added, could be hitting balls hard to the gaps.
Arm: INF - 74 mph.  Throws from a high 3/4 slot. Arm strength is average for age.
Defense: Range is limited, best on the corners. Glove work is average, with some give inwards towards body. With gained athleticism and range of motion he will improve.
Run: 8.42 runner in the 60. Runs from a tall position, would benefit from more forward lean.
