He will get better at this.
He still takes some bad routes to the ball, but his speed is usually enough to compensate.

Only other problem, is that he sometimes has too much confidence in his wheels. So he'll lay out with full extension after a ball that he'd be better off one hopping.
Sometimes he'll make that play, but others the ball gets past him allowing the hitter at least 1 extra base and sometimes more.

These things can and probably will be fixed.

Good to have someone else on here from the BTR.
