Pinkney is one of the players from Canada who's come a very long way. A good-looking catcher, he looks right in the box, stands upright, good feel and has a backside approach. He notched two hits to his name today, and defensively you could argue that he's the best defensive option for the national team right now. The arm works, he's a dog behind the plate, plus makeup, and he has a body that looks the part right now


2019 Future Games
Pinkney, a 6-foot, 155-pound catcher for the Ontario Terriers was a standout in Game 1 of the week. A left-handed hitter, Pinkney roped a ball into the right-centre gap in his first at-bat; it’s a smooth, short swing through the hitting zone. Behind the plate, Pinkney received well, while showing off a strong arm. He threw out a runner easily to end the third inning in a 0-0 game at the time. The bat plays, with lots of ability behind the dish; he’s a definite watch in the class of 2022.


6-foot, 155-pound catcher Hugh Pinkney of the Ontario Terriers was a pleasant surprise at Play Ball Academy. Behind the dish, Pinkney displayed impressive arm speed, standing out automatically in the group. His throws were up 76 mph, and with added strength to his slender frame, he will make increases in his throwing velocity. From the left side of the plate, Pinkney uses a toe-tap as a timing mechanism and starts his swing with his hands low, showing comfort hitting pitches down and inside. With his starting point, Pinkney naturally comes upward to the baseball, showing the ability to get a hold of a pitch and drive it in his hot spots. He could benefit from some adjustments mechanically at the plate, but there’s currently bat whip with a steady plane which should allow him to have success on the offensive side. Pinkney has the chance to develop into a strong catcher in the class of 2022.
