Van Horn is a live bodied junior middle infielder from New Jersey that we saw play very well this past summer. His speed and arm strength were both off down in Florida from what we previously saw and we suspect Van Horn has been temporarily the victim of Northeast winter baseball workouts. On the other hand, it looked like Van Horn had gained some strength. At the plate, Van Horn hits from a tall stance, with high hands and an open to closed approach. He has a high leg lift trigger that can cause him to be late to the ball, but he generates good bat speed through the zone and the ball jumps off his bat well. With his usual 6.9 type speed, athleticism and strength, Van Horn has a chance to be a well rounded offensive player. Defensively, we see Van Horn as a third baseman down the road, although the thought of his offensive ability at second base is intriguing, too. Van Horn is a very good student.

Greg Van Horn is a live bodied 2006 infielder from Cranford, New Jersey, who projects as a third baseman in the future. Van Horn was one of the top prospects at the South Underclass Showcase and had a very nice balance of athletic tools. His body is projectable as well. Van Horn quickly got everyone’s attention by hitting the first pitch of the first game for an inside the park home run, highlighting both power and his sub 7.0 speed. Van Horn has a nice simple, balanced swing without much extra motion and generates solid bat speed. He should continue to develop as a hitter as he gains strength. Van Horn has enough arm strength (81 mph in workouts) along with his speed and athleticism to be a solid defensive infielder. He looked especially adept at the quick release throws charging the ball or starting a double play.
