Positional Profile: Catcher
Body: 5-11, 145-pounds. Lean athletic body, wiry strength, room for strength gains.
Hit: RHH. Wide feet, very slightly open in small crouch, relaxed arms, shifts weight from front to back, small stride, balanced, load has some depth. Keeps hands separated from body, loose wrists, compact and direct to ball, tilts head and eye level as swing comes through, swing happens easily with rhythm.
Power: 85.9 max exit velocity, 64.9 max bat speed, 21.3 max hand speed.
Arm: RH. C - 73 mph. Short somewhat slingish arm action from 3/4 slot, throws lacked carry though ball comes out decently, syncing of feet and the exchange would bring about more consistency.
Defense: 2.21-2.35 pop times. Has agility, energetic presence behind plate, worked well with pitchers, soft glove with confidence in his receiving.
Run: 7.78 runner in the 60.

Positional Profile: RHP
2 IP;K, K, 1B, L5, F9, 3B, 5-6, 3U
Delivery: windup- sets chest high, small step towards first letting his hands come down to belt high. Leg lift has a little kick out towards 3B. Separates as he brings his hands slightly back to his starting position. Good arm circle down, while having a strong glove side into a strong/healthy scap load. Lands on a strong front leg and has a tendency to finish across his body (easy clean up).
Arm Action: RH. Good separation over the rubber. Clean arm circle back keeping the ball towards SS. Gets into a solid scap load. Release is a 3/4 slot. His release point is short of his front foot. Will see big gains when he gains a foot and a half on his release point.
FB: T77, 74-76 mph. Has a well above average spin rate of 2248.With such a high spin rate his FB is perceived closer to low 80s to hitters. Works downhill.
SL: 69-70 mph. Best pitch. Going to be even harder to hit when he gains velo.
CH: 73-75 mph. Carries like a FB with change-up action. As FB velocity increases his change will become a strong 3rd pitch.
