Scouting Report

Players Comments
Hitting for Average
Mackenzie is an extremely strong kid, but mechanically raw right now. allows rear elbow to touch back hip during the stride and essentially hits from the slot without momentum. Jones has a ton of upside as a hitter if she can make the mechanical adjustments necessary.
Hitting for Power
with adjustments could have really big time power. will hit HR now and doubles. to consistently do this in games, she’s some mechanical changes away from becoming much more efficient at the place. Jones could easily hit balls 240 FT + with momentum on her side in the swing.
Running Ability
2.79 Home to 1B
Arm Strength
60 MPH overhand throw
Fielding Ability
strong kid behind the plate. a little raw still. makes vertical moves during her throws to 2B and 3B which tends to take her legs from her, forcing balls to the 2B side of 2B on throws with rear hip/leg drag. very lateral with her shoulder during the throw, which will cause misses to the left/right instead of up and down.
National Showcase Jones improves her scouting index behind the plate and at the plate as a hitter. Jones is still raw, but is showing signs of very solid athletic ability overall. Jones shows again that she’s a plus runner with power at the plate. she is a few minor adjustments away at the plate from really putting things together and has even more bat speed than we saw in Des Moines.
