Defensive Projection:

A physical prospect with an athletic frame. Stands out for abilities behind the dish. Very quick feet/transfer back there with feel in game. Popped 2.16, 2.23 in workout, showing above average arm strength. Has all the physical tools to be a middle of the lineup type with the bat. Tends to loose barrel at times with an exaggerated bat tip load, causing an inconsistent path. Ball comes off well when squared however, showing a faster bat through the zone with heavy hands at contact.

A right-handed hitter that starts in a taller setup. Athletic load, incorporating a bat tip, leg kick combination. Can lose the barrel at times during load. Downhill stroke with a swing that offers a bit more present strength than speed. Would be aided by leveling out path to let his natural physicality show in pop/ball flight. Really looks the part behind the dish. Physical, athletic presence back there. Very quick transfer and footwork. Above average arm both strength wise and accuracy wise. Very solid catch and throw guy for class.

Really liked what I saw from Kocik behind the dish. Ideal frame for the spot with well above average athleticism for the position. Showed off athleticism by running the second fastest 60-yard dash of the day at 7.15. Starts in a lower crouch before bursting out with quick feet, gaining ground with good direction to second base. Exchange skills are well above average for class and ball comes out well. Pop times were anywhere from 2.06-2.13. At the plate he has run producer frame/natural tools. Front foot hitter that can lose the barrel at times. Downhill path with barrel authority through contact. Swing has room to clean up but the strength and bat speed is obvious.

Exchange skills are clean and ball comes out well. Arm is a well above average tool for age. Should be a sun 2.0 guy before it’s all said and done.
