6-foot-1, 205-pound, broad-shouldered, durable, right-handed hitting catcher. Has long been one of the more polished right-handed bats in the class and continued to showcase that at the ProCase. Starts in a wide, spread out stance with quiet, smooth rhythm pre-pitch. Repeatable swing and movement patterns, bat stays extremely flat, gets long through the hitting zone and he is able to cover both sides of the plate and all corners of the strike zone. Plattner looked most comfortable when he was able to get his arms extended routinely back spinning baseballs with natural lift to the big part of the diamond. Plattner averaged 89.2 mph, T98.1 mph off the bat and his furthest batted ball travelled 344 feet. Defensively, continues to improve his skill set behind the plate. Sure hands, clean and repeatable out of the crouch and arm plays best when he is controlled and balanced throughout transfer. Short arm action, over-the-top slot and throws flashed carry, topping at 80 mph with a low pop time of 1.94. Yet another strong showing from the Central Illinois product.
