2/19/19 - Santa Clara commit - Bacura has a chance to be a high level prospect by the time he’s a senior. At 5-foot-11, 185-pounds he a strong, physical body built to handle the rigors of the position. He has present strength throughout the frame, particularly in the shoulders and the lower half. He shows very soft hands behind the plate and the ability to get out of his crouch in a hurry with plus footwork. Settles in low and quietly before exploding out of his crouch on throwdowns to second base. Popped in the 2.01-2.11 range in between innings. At the plate his strength is on display as he makes the bat look like light. Has quickness in his hands that allows him to get and keep the barrel in the zone for a long time which usually results in loud, hard contact.

1/5/19 - SoCal Preseason All-State, -5-foot-11, 175-pounds, long, athletic frame with physical projection remaining. From the right side, Bacura has a nice line drive swing with good bat path. Drove balls to all field during his BP round and registered an velocity of 86 mph. Very impressive hitting skills on display with present gap-to-gap abilities. Defensively, he showcased his athleticism behind the dish. Has soft, quiet hands with a quiet, balanced setup. Footwork is very good, and he does a good job of blocking and keeping the ball out in front of him. Pop times ranged from 2.08-2.18. Very intriguing prospect to follow moving forward.

1/5/19 - SoCal Preseason All-State Quick Hits - Bacura is arguably one of the top uncommitted catchers in his class thanks in part to his advanced tools behind the plate and the power in his bat. Shows a quiet/balanced setup with soft hands and excellent catch/throw abilities popping in the 2.01 - 2.18 range with accuracy to the bag. At the plate he sprayed balls to all fields on a line registering an 86 mph exit velocity.

6/1/18 - Bacura is a 5-foot-10, 175-pound, physical, broad shouldered catcher that projects in a big way both behind the plate and with the bat. An average runner (7.50) in the 60, Bacura is quicker than he is fast and was timed a 4.57 with turn around first base. A solid upright setup at the plate allows Bacura to whip the bat through the hitting zone and keep it on path. Current power to the gaps could easily develop into over-the-fence power. A balanced setup with quiet actions behind the plate, Bacura's throwing motion can get a little long but there's arm strength there.
