2.9.19- ProCase
6-foot-3, 185-pound right-handed hitting catcher. Developing nicely, as he has continued to improve his game. Ran a 7.22 sixty on the laser at the event. Defensively, the receiving is solid, flexibility is good. The glove is soft, can continue to work on handling above average secondary stuff. The transfer is clean, needs to stay under control as the skill set to catch and throw is advanced. Threw 82 mph down to the second base with a pop time of 1.97. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 94 mph. The setup is even in base, bat has a small amount of wrap to it as the starts the swing. The path is long, buggy whip to the barrel, should hit for power as he matures. Uses a 1-handed finish after contact. 
Tee Exit Velocity- 94 mph
Catching Velocity- 82 mph
Pop Time- 1.97
May 2018

The 6-foot-1, 170 pound RHH had a semi-final day to remember.  Belted two HR’s while going 3 for 3 with 6 RBI’s in the win over the Plainsmen.  Effective load with appropriate pre-pitch movement, quick to the ball, repeatable motion.  Behind the dish, managed the game well and showed soft hands while receiving the ball. Fun player to watch as he has room to continue to fill out his athletic frame.

ENY All-Star Games (September 17, 2017)

Standing 6-foot-1, 170-pounds with an athletic frame from behind the dish. At the plate he uses a slightly open stance, loose free moving hands. Slight stride back to even on the pitch. Short compact path to the ball, barrel works slightly uphill with power projection to the gaps, 88 mph exit velocity off a tee. Catching, receives with confidence, soft glove. Quick footwork, transfer is clean with a release from a 3/4 slot, shows the ability to throw from knees. 74 mph arm from behind the plate with a pop-time on the day ranging 1.95 - 2.03 with accuracy to the 1B-side of the bag. Overall, the catching prospect from the greater Albany area, a recent Stony Brook Commit, will need to continue to add strength and size over the next 2 years, but the raw tools are visibly present.

8/2/2017

6-foot-1, 165-pound right-handed hitting catcher who put on an impressive display at the workout. Threw 75 mph down to second base in the workout. The pop time is 1.91 as the throwing path and footwork are advanced. Did show the ability to make throws from his knees and be accurate. The receiving is solid at this point and can continue to improve, needs to stay off his knees on the low ball. Excellent catch and throw prospect based off what I saw. Ran a 4.66 down the line. The bat, I like, tee exit velocity of 86 mph. The set up is wide, needs to direct front foot to the pitcher as sometimes it comes off-line. The hands work well, and the path is flat to the ball. The ability to hit is there, this guy could do damage at the college level with the correct tweaking and coaching. Excellent prospect.

NY Games (June 25-27, 2017)

Athletic 6-foot-1, 165-pound catcher, ran a 7.63/60. Offensively - Effective load with appropriate pre-pitch movement, quick to the ball, repeatable motion, keeps bat on level path through the zone with full extension after contact for an exit velocity of 85 MPH - consistent with his personal best of 86 MPH, inner knee rotation engages hips, smooth transfer of weight. Defensively - fundamentally sound, sure glove, smooth transfer to throwing hand, pinpoint accuracy with velocity of 76 MPH and POP time ranging between 2.06-2.14. Next-level backstop to keep an eye on.


Maryland Underclass Prospect Games (6.21.17)

Athletic, 6-foot-1, 170-pound frame. Hits from an athletic, slightly open set up. Short simple load with slight knee turn and stride. Gets lower half involvement. Level path at plate with bat speed and extension. Hands drag behind at times, think there is room for more pop for an already consistent hitter. Exit velocity of 86 mph. Nice rhythm at the plate. High motor player that hustles all over the field. Sound receiving skills, presented nice target to pitchers, works hard to keep everything in front of him. Nice hip control moving laterally on low balls. Quick feet and hands on transfer to throws to second. Short arm action with life on throws and accurate on the bag. Catcher velo of 77 mph with pop as low as 2.02. Ran a 4.84 home to first.

Preseason All-State (February 20, 2017)

Manderson, a 2019 right-handed hitting catcher currently ranked as the 13th best catching prospect for the 2019 class, stands at 6-foot-0 and weighs 150 pounds, ran a
7.76 60. Offensively- Works from a narrow square lower half, some slight bend with both knees, hands held above the back shoulder while the barrel of the bat is parallel to the ground. Initiates the swing with a subtle lift of the front foot, striding a good amount to the pitcher, while the hands are loaded straight back, slightly dipping below the height of the shoulder, staying even with the back shoulder and barrel of the bat gets perpendicular to the ground with some wrap towards the pitcher. During batting practice, drove the well from line to line, showing good authority and backspin to the opposite field gap. Hands take a compact path to the zone, staying behind the rotation of the hips well. Barrel of the bat stays in the hitting zone for an extended period of time. Recorded an impressive exit velocity of 83 MPH on the day.  Defensively-  Athletic square lower setup with the weight evenly balanced. Received the ball well, keeping the body quiet and working outside the ball to the corners, however lets the ball on the inner third get a bit too deep. Throws to second base, receives the top half of the ball which cause the glove to drop and create a circular motion while transferring the ball. Throws showed good accuracy and carry, with much more room to grow. Recorded a best pop time of an impressive 2.01 to go along with an arm velocity of 74 MPH. Projectable athletic body with good catch and throw tools, that showed continue to move up the ranks.
