PROCASE

6-foot, 190-pound left-handed hitting catcher.  Threw 80 mph down to second base on the transfer. Pop time of 2.06 and it can be quicken with better footwork, needs to be more aggressive with his feet. The arm strength and ability to receive are present. Needs to focus on the receiving portion of his game, as its important. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 89 mph. Sets up with his feet even, uses a small pick up and put down of the front foot as the ball approaches. The swing plane needs to be flattened as there is too much lift in the path. Minimizing the bat wrap will aid his contact point as well.

6.28.2017

5-foot-10, 185 pound left-handed hitting catcher. Threw 76 mph from behind the dish and had a pop time of 1.9 . The footwork needs to continue to improve as does the transfer, gets long with his arm at times. The receiving is solid and he is going to work hard to improve, as he has the tools. Securing the catch will be integral to his game. Ran a 4.8 down the line on his dig to first base. Threw 81 mph across the diamond from third. The glove is solid, showed athleticsm and can make all the throws from there. Tee exit velocity of 87 mph in the left-handed swing. Hits with his feet even, big leg lift as the ball approaches. The path is out and around to contact, as he is going to have to shorten the path at the next level. The hands are good, so that should be easy to clean up.
Tee Exit Velocity- 87 mph
Catching Velocity- 76 mph
INF Velocity- 81 mph

Athletic left-handed hitting catcher. The glove and receiving is solid at his age. The movements are quick and athletic. The transfer is clean and the arm works appropriately. Good looking catch and throw skills. The bat has a good life to it, very advanced path and hand speed at his age. Solid looking prospect, older brother plays at Elon.
