ETSU Commit. 6-foot-2, 195 pounds. One of the better under the radar two ways, his vast baseball skillset has some wondering what his role will be at the next level. While many think he is a pitcher, I favor him as a hitter and think he can be an impact bat early in his college career. At the plate he’s shockingly handsy for his size, creating very good rhythm in the swing overall with free but controlled movement. His negative move is minimal, producing just enough momentum in the lower half for his forward move. He stacks the backside in stride, creating stored power and connection as he begins to separate. Fones separation timing is innate, and his trigger into launch position is one of the best I’ve seen in the class. He repeats it very well with an angle overhead that promotes a clean knob led path as the bat begins to enter the zone. He matches plane very naturally and simplified the swing by starting with his shoulders tilting south before the negative move. He gradually flattens them on the negative move, then effortlessly works on an incline that matches pitch trajectory. Caleb’s pro trigger and fluidity in and out of launch position combined with the natural ability to lift show me he can hit for some serious power in college. That’s without even talking about how well he times up pitchers' release points and how well he sees the baseball. Fones had two barrels against one of the better uncommitted arms in the state, and handled himself against a future draft prospect. As a pitcher, he’s got very good feel and his FB plays up due to deception and arm slot. His confidence in the CH is extremely high, and he sells the pitch well. The SLV is continuing to improve, and he threw it much more often in this series
