Ueta showed a very holistic approach to the game of baseball. He was one of the best two-way players that showed at our Whalley Open ID last summer. He is a physical body at 6-foot-1, 185-pounds, with a clear commitment to the weight room. He moves well in the box and outfield, showing pop in his bat and running a respectable 7.1 60-yard dash. He has extension to spare in his swing, with a smooth and rhythmic load. He showed consistent contact in his rounds with good backspin to his pull-side. On the mound, Ueta impressed by hitting a PR on the PBR mound, maxing out at 84 while sitting 81-82 for most of his bullpen. He showcased multiple pitches, including a big curveball and splitter/change-up combo. He increased his command and velocity as the bullpen went on, and it was easy to see he has the makeup as a potential college starting pitcher in the future. There is a lot to work with in Ueta, and his makeup should excite college recruiters looking for a young player who enjoys the weight room and all aspects of the game.

One of the better two-way players at the Fall Open, Ueta, has many tools to like. At the plate, Ueta displayed a strong swing. He gets his hands to the right spot at launch and utilizes his lower half well. A flatter bat path produced hard line drives to all fields and fast hands through the hitting zone. From the outfield, Ueta moved around well and got good carry on his throws with right fielding actions. He ran a 7.1 60 and has room to fill out in his already physical frame.

Ueta commanded a mound presence with a large, muscular frame and a heavy fastball (81-83, max 84). He filled up the zone with a 4-pitch arsenal. His splitter (63-67) complemented his changeup (71-74) with similar movement but significantly less velocity and exaggerated late vertical break. His CB is an arching, late-breaking steep drop that works well as a 4th pitch. While not overpowering, Ueta will frustrate hitters with command and impressive off-speed pitches.
