Venice senior shortstop Dalton Guthrie (Univ. of Florida commit) can really play the game. He is cut from the same cloth as Regis Jesuit shorstop Max George, but Guthrie is a much more capable defender with a lesser bat. His defensive awareness is impressive, as is his ability to catch and throw on plays ranging from routine to difficult. He appears to me to be capable of playing at a high level defensively, I don’t see increasing speeds of the game causing him any trouble at all. He handles the bat well and runs the bases aggressively, for me relying more on feel to hit than the natural skills like he has defensively.
