5-foot-7, 155-pound right-handed hitting catcher. He showed very well at the event. He ran a 7.31 sixty on the turf at the event. The approach and skill set behind the dish is solid, throwing 72 mph down to second base with a pop time of 1.98. The feet work well and the throwing is short on the back half. The receiving is solid and he secures the catch appropriately. The bat has an exit velocity of 88 mph. The setup is even in base and he uses a pick up and put down of the front foot as the ball approaches the hitting zone. The path is slightly uphill through contact with the baseball. The hands work free and clean with the bat.

5-foot-7, 145-pound, strong, well proportioned athlete, rounded shoulders, very strong lower half, put together well for his age. A right-handed hitting catcher/corner infielder, behind the plate, arm was clocked at 70 mph, from a ¾ slot. The pop time was 2.0-2.13, throws were close or on the bag. The feet work can get more inline, closing down the front side. At third base, arm was clocked at 69 mph, feet move throughout, showed the ability to start the double going to glove side. The pro-move slow roller was made with ease good clean feet, throwing on the run. Offensively, starts even from the right-side, hands are loose, at the shoulders, bat starting more of a flat position.  The lower half is under control, small controlled leg kick, gains ground. The swing is level to up, barrel stays in the zone, looks to drive the baseball from field to field. The tee exit velocity 78 mph, had solid contact in rounds of batting practice. Good looking young catcher.

Tee Exit Velocity: 78 mph
Arm Velocity: 69 mph
