Vinal is a 6-foot-1, 170 pound left-handed hitting catching prospect. He hits out of a tall, wide stance, with the hands relaxed. He uses a big leg kick to stack the weight over the back leg. The hands guide the bat-head through the hitting zone on a slightly uphill path, producing an exit velocity of 81 MPH during his round. He remains balanced throughout the swing and gets through the ball well.

Defensively, Vinal had a pop time range of 2.0-2.2 seconds and a velocity of 74 MPH on his throws to second base. His initial set up is square, balanced, with the glove relaxed. As he transitions to throw, the feet move well and get him into a good throwing position. The arm is short and quick, finishing over his front leg.

6-foot-1, 170-pound left-handed hitting catcher. Ran a 7.59 sixty at the event. The skill set behind the dish is solid as he moves athletically. He threw 69 mph down to second base with a pop time of 2.0. The receiving can continue to improve as he matures in age, softening the glove and securing the catch. The transfer is clean and with the addition of strength, he should flourish. The bat has an exit velocity of 88 mph. The setup is even in base and the hands work clean. The path to contact is flat and on plane. He finish through the ball.  If he physically matures his game will improve immensely.
