The 6-foot, 185-pound,with an athletic frame and strong build. Powell throws 1.98, 1.99 and 1.99. His footwork needs some development and would benefit from moving more toward second base, but his strong arm makes up for it now. He is an advanced receiver with quiet, soft hands and a wide stance. He moves well laterally and stays around the ball when he blocks. Offensively he has a short compact swing with fast bat speed. He bat path is slightly uphill. He gets extension through contact. He can not maintain balance due to diving in over the plate. Powell is a good defensive catcher and projects to get better as he fills out into his frame.
