Hunter Silvernail, C/OF, Pope John, 2017
10/18/15 --  We've now gotten to know Silvernail pretty well throughout the course of three events and a handful of summer games. After a slower pop time at the Underclass Games (74 MPH, 2.03-2.12), the 5-foot-11, 185 pound prospect was back to his normal throwing ways; 75-76 miles-per-hour down to second base with steady 2.0-2.03 pop times. He displays soft hands and a feel for receiving the low ball. He blocks well and is quick to his feet to recover. At the dish, the right-handed hitter is a little out of control early in the count but will bare down and display balance and a feel for hard contact with two strikes. His hardest hit balls all came with 2K. Watch for him to take the next step offensively as he buckles down on a more consistent approach.
9/20/15 – Silvernail was impressive yet again despite not quite showing the same arm strength down to second base. He was more efficient in his lower half movements and direction once again was a strength. He is a good receiver who also showed the ability to block well, particularly to his throwing side. He was much improved offensively as he showed more of a line drive swing plane which resulted in much better barrel control. He has added a small leg kick which is a nice look as he now generates louder contact to his pull side.
7/16/15 – Silvernail is an athletic catching prospect with broad shoulders standing 5-foot-11. Offensively, Silvernail hit with a slightly open stance and a short stride that gets him back to even and balanced. He has a smooth load of the hands and keeps a short path to the ball with bat speed. He has a level swing plane and long extension into a high finish.
Defensively, Silvernail had the most arm strength of all the catchers at the event (81 MPH). He was on the bag and had very solid direction. Advancing his foot speed could increase his already solid 1.97 pop time down to second base. He has a solid set up and receives well. He catches with a quiet confidence that commands respect. He displayed soft hands and received the low ball well.
