Joseph Loftus is a 2008 3B/P with a 6'3'', 200 lb. frame from Savage, MN who attends Academy of Holy Angels. He has a strong, well proportioned athletic build that should continue to add strength. He has the arm strength and hands to play third base well but will have keep working on his footwork and foot quickness as the game speeds up. Loftus's bat is his tool and it should carry him. His swing combines bat speed and length/extension for power and Loftus has lots of leverage at contact. The ball comes off his bat hard and carries far to all fields. Loftus has a good idea how to hit for a player from the far north and showed a very good approach against top level pitching. His bat has a high ceiling. Loftus is a 7.05 runner but plays faster on the bases because of his baserunning instincts. He has a great approach to the game and looks like the type who will maximize his potential. He is an excellent student off the field.
