Compact frame with low center of gravity at 5-foot-8 180 pounds. Steady receiver; accurate arm that hovers in the 2.10-2.15 range. Open setup; deep in the knees with an explosive lower half; produces good torque through the core. Squared up a double to the left center gap and followed with a 2-run single on Friday night. Loud contact.

Preseason-West (Feb. 19, 2018)
Samalot weighs 180-pounds, from a 5-foot-8 frame, thick strong lower half, ideal for the demands of the catching  position. At the plate he uses a wide base hands high around his head, on the pitch he uses a back load knee lift for timing with a stride, hands power inside the ball on an aggressive path, strong, drops some on back side, fluid long finish, 80 mph exit velocity off a tee, but expect that number to rise come this summer. Defensively,  uses a wide base to receive the ball, soft hands, gets the ball out of his glove quick with a fast release near his ear, over the top slot 73 mph arm strength from the catching position, 2.09 pop time was his best on the day. Catching Prospect to keep an eye on come this spring - summer.

Hands slightly drawn back, backside explodes upon contact. Swing has natural upward finish, leading to flyball/ line drive results. Ability to drive the ball to pull side. Peak exit velocity of 85 MPH (Up 5 MPH from 9/24/27). Power potential is there. Defensively- Creates compact target for pitcher. Receives the ball well with quick transfer set up through footwork that gain ground into his throws. Arm strength was 71 MPH (Up 3 MPH from 9/24/17) with pop times ranging from 2.19-2.25.Eliminating slight delay after transfer into throw should get him back to his sub 2.1 pop times.
