Ontario Insider: Canada's Junior National Team Spring Roster - 2018 Ontario Players

Noah Naylor, C, Ontario Blue Jays
Committed: Texas A&M
Overview: Naylor looks to be on the same path as his brother Josh, a 2015 first round pick of the Miami Marlins with the amount of tools he brings to the table. Still a year away from the 2018 draft, the athletic and agile catcher will be a key component of Canada’s success at the World Championships as he looks to be an offensive threat while controlling the pitching staff and being able to shut down the running game from behind the dish. A smooth, balanced, left-handed stroke at the plate, the hit tool is greater than the power at the moment, but Naylor still shows the ability to leave the yard if pitchers make a mistake. The feet and transfer are extremely quick behind the plate while the ball jumps out his hand with easy carry and accuracy. Naylor profiles as middle of the order bat and will look for a strong start to the 2017 season.

Ben Abram, RHP, Ontario Terriers
