MD Top Prospect Games 6/20/17

March is a built outfielder and left-handed hitter. He has an athletic setup and generates rhythm throughout his smooth stroke. He employs a small leg kick and is able to consistently barrel up the ball. He is able to get the bat on plane with the pitch early and it stays in the zone for a long period of time. He gets tremendous extension and uses his lower half well. In the outfield, he has a quick first step and average footwork. He utilizes a pro step to get the ball out of his glove quickly. His long arm action gives him a little bit of carry on throws that were fairly accurate.
