John Melson is a 2014 SS/RHP with a 5-10 150 lb. frame from Marietta, GA who attends Lassiter. He is a switch hitting short stop with an athletic build. From the left side of the plate he has a short swing path to the ball, with a narrow stance and an aggressive approach at the plate. From the right side of the plate he showed quick hands with a line drive middle of the field swing, has a loose easy swing and makes solid contact. Has a quick release at short stop with an accurate arm, a good first step and plays through the ball well. He throws from a sidearm arm slot on the mound with run and sink on his fastball. He works down in the zone with a good straight change which he maintains his arm speed on, and fields his position well. Is an outstanding student.
PG Grade 8.0

John Melson is a 2014 SS/RHP/2B with a 5-10 150 lb. frame from Marietta, GA who attends Lassiter HS. Medium athletic build, room to get stronger, young look. Switch-hitter, similar approach and bat speed both sides, bent knee crouched stance, stays short and direct to the ball, simple sound approach, stays balanced, line drive plane, hits to all fields, should continue to improve with additional strength. Solid infield actions, arm works well, accurate throws when feet set, quick release, 7.27 runner, moves well to the ball. Also pitched, works from the stretch, sidearm to below delivery, will occasionally come high 3/4's, big run/sink on mid 70's fastball, same fastball velocity from higher release point, soft sweeping curveball, some feel for change up. Good student.
