6-foot-0 175 pounds. While the appearance was short for Harper as Triton rotated catchers the entire day, Harper left a good impression in his short time. The defensive first backstop showed very well in all aspects of catching. He showed soft hands and receiving ability stealing multiple strikes on borderline pitches; his blocking ability matched the ability to receive as he kept numerous dirt balls in front of him within reachable distance. The arm and transfer played as well as he was clocked multiple times in the 1.95-2.06 range. Offensively he made some loud contact as well and is a quality player that should come off the board soon.

6-foot, 170 pounds. Medium frame. Showed advanced swing and approach, so far, this weekend. Made loud contact each game this weekend. Active hands and lower-half. Showed pull-side power, but stuck to line-drive, gap approach most AB’s. Showed advanced blocking behind the plate. Had a strong showing at the Top Prospect Games.

Harper is a steady, smooth defender who hits with a methodical approach. He checks in at 6-foot, 170 pounds, and works with a good baseball clock. Behind the plate, he is a quiet receiver of the baseball and possesses an accurate arm, producing a top pop time of 2.04 at this event. At the plate, Harper is also quiet and produces some pull-side power (82 mph exit velo), but his offensive game is more about being on time rather than pure bat speed. His feel for the bathead and rhythm serve him well at the plate. Harper plays the game with some throwback feel and an even-keeled demeanor.
