Futures Showcase (February 28, 2015)

Crandall Stands 5-foot-5, 115-pounds. Offensively- At the plate he starts even with an athletic stance.  Small stride and back load for timing on the pitch.  Should work on removing a slight hitch before his hands move forward.  Opens his hips prematurely  before contact.  Keeping his front foot down will help him stay inside the ball.  Swing has some incline, finishes low.  Pitching- On the mound he starts with his hands high and in front.  Uses a sidestep to a high leg lift.  Small hand bump at top of balance point.  Good rhythm, uses drop and drive method.  High 3/4 arm slot.  Departs clean from rubber, should work on extending out and over his glove side.  Max FB 68 MPH.  Good young athlete.
