Cole is a quick-twitched, strong, left-handed bat that gives coaches options both in the OF and in the MIF. In the OF, Cole feels comfortable in all three spots because of his natural athleticism and ability to run down baseballs. Considering his tremendous speed, Cole is special in that he can misread a baseball at first, but holds the gift of being able to adjust, put his head down, go track a baseball down and make a play as well as anyone. With that said, he has great judgement and takes good angles that fair well with his explosive arm action. He does a terrific job attacking hops and the ball truly jumps out of his hand when throwing to each base. Because of his speed and competitiveness, Cole also gives coaches the option to play both sides of the bag in the MIF. He moves extremely well side-to-side and has great hands. His quick-twitch and arm talent help him show really well when working a bag and turning double plays. Cole shines most perhaps when he is in the batter’s box. He is another one of those guys that owns the box, never backing down until an at-bat is over. Early in the count, Cole gets his money’s worth by taking explosive, aggressive hacks and trying to split gaps. Late in the count, Cole is one of this program’s best at hitting with two-strikes. He takes pride in his approach, rarely striking out, knowing that even a routine ground ball in the infield poses as a threat to the opposition because of how quick and explosive he is when running down the baseline. Once he gets on base, Cole’s speed continues to factor in while he runs the bases. He gets impressive jumps when stealing bases as well as aggressive dirt-ball reads because he is always looking to move up to the next base. Cole has that “dawg” mentality, playing the game on edge and as he continues to improve on playing cleanly and level-headed, he will make for a great fit at a bunch of programs at the next level.
