4/07/23 Uncommitted 6-foot-1 160-pounds. Read has been one of my favorite players of the spring. The athleticism and competitiveness shows in all aspects of his game. He has one of best gloves I have seen this spring at SS, and can make the tough plays ranging to his right and left. He is heads up on the bases, and has long, athletic strides while running. At the plate he has a wide, steady stance that generates power from the lower half, and keeps the bat in the zone throughout the swing. Read is a spark plug type player that makes everyone around him better, and get his team going when needed.
