9.9.18
2019 grad Riley McErlean put on an impressive showing behind the plate at Astros Scout day. McErlean ranged from 1.91-2.10 on catcher pops, showing off a quick transfer with a short arm recoil getting the ball off to second in a hurry. The tools are raw at the plate, there’s not much rhythm leading into his load, but as he comes forward the bat to ball skills are evident. He shows some bat whip, with a flat plane and a lengthy follow through. The arm was sitting 80-82 off the rubber, with extension out front. Right now he’s more of a thrower off the mound, but with fine-tuning, it’s an exciting arm to keep an eye on. Overall, McErlean is a catch-and-throw guy with lots of ability to work with offensively. 

8/6/17
A right-handed hitter that starts in a wider setup. Uses a short stride for timing. Hands stay simple during load. Launches from a balanced position. Natural tools are developing. Line drive guy with much more in there as he fills out his projectable frame. Does a nice job of staying inside the baseball. Behind the plate he starts in a mid crouch. Gets out of stance with fluidity. Footwork is mechanically sound. Transfer skills are clean but have room to get faster. Arm is accurate.
60-Yard Dash: 7.38
Pop Time: 2.05-2.17
Catcher Velocity: 74
Exit Velocity: 87

 
10.23.16
2018 catcher with room to add size and strength to his 6-foot, 155-pound frame.  Wiry body with young features and room to add size and strength, moves well on the field, ran a 4.66 down the line from the right side. Offensively, hits from upright, slightly open stance, small stride while hands load back with slight hesitation before launch, bat gets through the zone while staying controlled, some quickness in hands, at best when he stays extended through ball and gap to gap. Defensively, throws ball well from the crouch, short arm with clean transfers, was 76 mph down to second with carry to the bag. Relaxed setup behind the plate with slight body turn, hands work but can soften a bit with reps, continues to keep improving defensive side of game. Arm really plays as ball jumps out hand, has tools to work with, a little polish with physical maturity this offseason and McErlean looks to be a strong catcher in his 2018 class.
