Colorado Insider: Under the Radar 2015 Catchers




John Cackowski
State Director, Colorado

Recently PBR Colorado put out its first 2015 and 2016 player rankings. With any list that has to deal with rankings there will always be discussion and opinion. In our 2015 list we ranked out to 35, and in our 2016 list we ranked out to 40. We will be expanding both of these lists to 50, 75, and 100 as we get a chance to see more players in events and games. Below is a list of some 2015 catchers who could move up in our rankings. All but one are not committed.

Parker Jax: Cherry Creek 
5-11, 185-pound right-handed hitting catcher is currently uncommitted.  The Colorado Top Prospect games was the first time the PBR staff has seen Jax and he impressed.  He stands tall with a slightly wide open stance, a short close down stride, hands are already back and creating short, level bat path with extension and above average 84 mph exit velocity. Jax gets the most out of his swing, and during batting practice he hit several hard line drives showing gap to gap power.  Defensively, reeled off live in-game pop times between 1.97-2.05, with very good accuracy (Both balls down to 2nd and 3rd were dropped which would have resulted in the runners being thrown out). Jax framed well all weekend and managed pitchers he did not know well. Ran a 6.93 60 yard dash, which is very good for a catcher,  and 4.56 seconds from home to first.
