Evaluation

Asante is a slightly undersized but athletic MIF/RHP. He has some room to add some strength but not a body that would really suggest big jumps coming in size or strength. High energy type player best suited to 2B. Offensively Asante shows a simple, middle of the field approach. Simple swing, small hand load straight back, and a direct path to ball. Fringy bat speed but solid bat to ball skills. Line drive path. A little weak to really impact the ball presently and occasionally will try to overcompensate and swing with body. Swing will work as he gains strength and is able to trust his hands. Never going to be much of power guy but chance to handle the bat and hit for some average. Did not run well in this particular look (8.2 60) but moves fine and has chance to significantly improve speed as he gets stronger. Defensively Asante is best suited to 2B. Some work needed with defensive actions but a live lower half and ball stays in his glove. Shows some body control. Tough to see enough arm strength for left side of the infield in the future but accurate arm and will play fine at 2B. Also pitched 1 inning. Functional delivery tho lot of effort with an early head pull and doesn’t create a ton of deception. Good strike thrower tho and works fast to challenge hitters in the zone. Around the plate with FB (69-71), should continue to improve as he gets stronger. Rolling type CB (56-59) with some depth and shape, nice feel to throw it for strikes already. Smaller kid that is going to need to add significant strength but plays with good energy and shows a little feel for the game. Chance to be a bit of a late developing, small school recruit.
