8.16.18
Strong and compact frame on Bottero at 5-foot-11, 185-pounds. Strength plays offensively and uses it to generate well to contact with some bat speed and exit velo of 88 mph. Throws and times were much better behind the dish with accuracy and pop time of 2.03. Hard nosed player who can help contribute behind the dish at the right program in the 2019 class.
3.31.18
A strong catcher with broad shoulders, a projectable frame and room to add more size and fill out. Strong upper half evident during in batting practice, Bottero took aggressive hacks from the right side of the plate using his quick hands and strong arms to generate quick bat speed through the zone. Looks to lift the ball consistently on his swings which can get long at times. Behind the plate, Bottero shows proper footwork and some lower half agility, although the same strength isn’t there just yet. Pop time right around 2.03-2.08 seconds with room for improvement with further development. Bottero is an intriguing catching prospect of the 2019 class with room to continue to get stronger and better in all facets of the game.
2.19.18
A physical catcher with a broad and strong frame with room to add even more muscle. At the plate, has a powerful swing from the right side with some raw pop potential. Uses a toe tap load, shows off some quick hands, and has an uphill bat path which he uses to get good lift on the baseball. Behind the plate, Bottero has the tools to remain at the position. Shows some lower half agility, as well as quick and fluid transfers, with room to develop more arm strength with his clean arm. Overall, the 2019 grad passes the eye test and has the physical tools to take a big step forward in his development this summer
10.22.17
Bottero is a catcher with physicality and strength to his 5-foot-11, 185-frame. Looks and fits the part as a catcher with strong upper half and will still fill out more as a 2019 grad. Defensively, best pop time is 2.12 with a short, catch and throw transfer, arm is average and can obtain more carry on throws with some small adjustments, still shows skills needed to stay behind the dish. Offensively, strong hands and wrists, whips bat through the zone with more pop to his pull side, can involve more lower half into swing, does a good job of getting the barrel through the zone and looks to drive the ball in the air. One to watch moving forward, meets the eye test and can be in line for a big jump in 2018.
