TAYLOR HOWELL / C / 1B / USJ, TN / 2019

4-6, HR, BB

Catcher showed some of the better offensive tools we have seen all spring, culminating in a no doubt grand slam home run to left center field.  Tall, athletic frame w/ present strength, some physical projection.  Imposing frame jumps out when you get to the field.  Offensively, hits w/ an open, slightly crouched stance w/ short hand rhythm into stride to square and proper load.  Generates premium bat speed through the zone w/ natural loft.  Repeatable swing w/ balance, spin recognition.  Zero swing and miss on 12 swings.  Rare combination of contact and big power.  Projectable power to all fields w/ present power up the middle to pull side.  Explodes through the baseball.  Defensively, present a big target to throw to.  Can present a target for his pitchers, barely opens his glove as he moves.  Strong forearms with ability to stick the baseball, beat it to a spot.  Shows above average arm strength w/ some length in his release.
