5-foot-9, 126-pound, small, thin athletic frame, shoulders are rounded. A right-handed hitting catcher, who had a great workout. At the plate, hands are super loose and relaxed just above the shoulders. The feet are shorter than shoulder width, front foot starts open. For timing uses a small controlled leg kick, stride is longer, hands and weight stay back, front foot gets down on time, transfer the weight from back side to front. The swing is level to up, could flatten it a tick, however stays through it well and keeps the barrel in the zone a long time. The approach is to all fields, had a tee exit velocity 82 mph. The sixty-yard dash was recorded at 7.95. Defensively, had a pop time of 2.06-2.10 and arm was clocked at 69 mph. The arm works out of a high ¾ slot, throws were on or close to the second base bag. The transfer is a tick long, glove to hand could be quicker, easy fix with reps. The athletic ability is above average for his age, strength will aid in the development, look for the game to rise over the next year, good follow.
