Jonathan Marcus is a 2007 MIF/3B with a 5'11'', 165 lb. frame from Brookline MA, who attends Brookline HS. He has a live athletic body with some present strength, especially for a middle infielder. Marcus showed very solid defensive tools during drills and in the games. He has the athletic ability to make off balance plays and shows soft hands and solid actions. His arm strength is very good for second base but might be a little lacking at shortstop. At the plate Marcus has good bat speed and nice bat head skills. He stays inside the ball well and hits line drives to all fields. During batting practice Marcus showed some power potential he didn't take into the games and this is something that he might add to his game as he gets older. He's a good looking young hitter. Marcus ran the 60 in 7.16 but his quickness in the field and in running the bases makes him play faster than his stop watch times. Marcus is a very good student with high level academic ambitions and he can definitely play at some of the schools he's looking at.

Marcus is a slender 5-10, 145 lb junior middle infielder from Massachusetts. He ran the 60 in 7.34 and threw 77 mph in infield drills with a long arm action. Marcus’s feet work OK and he moves well but he will have to work on his arm strength and release. The best part of Marcus’s game is on offense right now. He has some hidden strength in his wiry frame and has very quick hands to the ball. Marcus hits from a spread stance with high hands and a quick line drive swing. He was square on the ball on virtually every pitch he swung at in BP and in games and had 3 hits and a couple of line drive outs against live pitching. With some more strength and physical maturity this young man could develop into a very nice hitter from what we saw and coaches in the Northeast should keep an eye on him.

Marcus is a 5-10 sophomore infielder from Massachusetts. He has a slender, young body that will likely start filling out soon. He showed us playable defensive actions during drills, with good feet and lower body quickness. He did have unusual hand position when fielding ground balls, which we attributed to a particular coaching technique, but it didn’t seem to hinder his approach. At the plate, Marcus has a 2-part swing with limited load and strike. He keeps his swing short and quick and will hit the ball where it’s pitched. He had a couple of at bats where he showed he was a battler at the plate. More strength and physical development will obviously help his ability to hit the ball with authority but he did show some hand strength for his size. Marcus is a 7.49 runner whose speed should improve as he gets stronger, too. He is a very good student.

Jonathan Marcus is 2007 infielder from Brookline, Massachusetts, with a 5'10", 140 pound frame. He hits with a wide, open stance and has a short, quick swing. He consistently hit hard line drives during batting practice, and made solid contact during the games while showing a good gap to gap approach. He also showed some raw power with a hard hit ball to the left field fence. Marcus showed good instincts in the field with good hands and solid footwork to go along with throwing 76 mph across the diamond. He is a good soph who needs to be followed. Jonathan is a very good student.

Jonathan Marcus -- Marcus is an extremely young and slender freshman from Massachusetts. He showed us quick hands and good actions defensively and it looks like he’s going to be a good player in the field. It’s really too early to make an evaluation on Marcus’ bat at this point when he’s swinging wood. He had a short swing and sound approach but at 130 lbs and 14 years old he was battling against some stronger competition. We look forward to watching Marcus over the next couple of years as he develops physically. Jonathan is an excellent student.
