Continues to get better behind the plate. The 5-foot-11, 190-pound catcher has improved his athleticism over the off-season and his catching skills after spending time with former Ohio State catcher Brian Manino. Behind the plate, he showed good footwork and a quick transfer. His pop times ranged between 1.98-2.00 with accurate throws on the bag. He reached a top velocity of 74 mph from the crouch. At the plate, he shows quick hands into the zone (85 mph exit velocity) with a slight uphill path to the ball.

8/1/12
5-foot-10, 190-pound catching prospect. Strong bodied kid with defensive skills. Has low positioning with lateral movement. Frames well. Reached top velocity of 72 mph from the crouch. Needs to keep working on footwork and glove to hand exchange to increase split time (2.07-2.12). Offensively, he shows an upright stance with back knee bend, squares barrel on ball well with future power bat potential. Needs to be more consistent in clearing front side and bat finish. Registered a 7.66 60-yard dash.

Short stocky body with good physical strength (5.62 40 yd dash on concrete surface). Good power bat offensively. Uses balanced stance with good load and moderate bat speed into zone. Controlled upper cut and strong hands in swing. Will increase his power potential with two-hand finish in swing which will enhance his lower body tourque. Shows some lateral movement defensively. Blocking is adequate. Has some arm strength. His pop time (2.08-2.13 pop) will increase with improved glove to hand exchange.
