08/06/2013 - College PREP - Glen Allen (Richmond), VA Claire is a talented young RHP with long limbs and an atletic frame. In the Circle, she uses a full arm swing with backward hand position and has an athletic base through a slightly rushed delivery to a closed off position. Better direction to the plate will improve her finish as well as command and will allow her to better utilize the advanced arm speed that she currently displays. She is very athletic and has good mound presence with a good understanding of how to get hitters out. As a hitter, Claire has an open stance with a back load, a short stride and keeps her balance centered before launching her level swing through the zone. An aggressive hitter, she can spray the ball to all fields, gets out of the box well and applies coaching very quickly with a true willingness to improve. Overall, Claire has a lot of potential and should continue to work hard through a consistent drill package while remembering to be detailed in her preparation to ensure her development continues.
