Leitch, now filled out at 6-foot-2, 205-pounds and carries it well. The bat is the carrying tool, as there is hit and power, with power being at the forefront. Able to be on time with big leg kick, showing body control while there is bat speed and strength with an uphill path that allows Leitch to launch balls and get elevated. Has improved mobility behind the plate while there is enough arm strength, hands have always played as he receives well with an understanding of the fundamentals to the position. Been an offensive threat with the National team, typically hitting in the middle of the order and performing versus professional pitching.

A while since we've had a good look at Leitch, the 2019 catcher shows present strength at 6-foot-2, 210-pounds and the right-handed hitter certainly uses that at the plate. Leitch uses a leg kick to load, and looks to do damage and drive the ball in the air with power to all parts of the field. The barrel stays through the zone and it is a different sound coming off the bat with bat speed and slight uphill path to contact. Top exit velocity of the event at 96 mph only speaks to what he can do with the bat. Leitch may have the most power in the province for his age class and he does a good job of spraying the ball across the diamond. Defensively, had a pop time of 2.03 while the arm showed carry to the bag and was mostly accurate on all of his throws. Biggest area to improve will be his footwork and staying agile in his lower half, the hands work well and does a sound job of working his glove around the zone and on inside pitches. One of the top prospects in the 2019 class, a definite bat that will intrigue many coaches immediately.

Right-handed hitting catcher that shows signs of being a power bat. Most of power is to right-centre, which you don't see often in the early stages of development. Bat speed there with easy actions, ball jumps off, little bit of natural lift in swing, could be power bat of the 2019 class. Behind the plate, actions are still raw while arm shows life at times, pop time in the 2.20-2.25 range. Lower half quickness will be big for Leitch, all signs point to him being a premier player in 2019 class.
