9/9/17 - 6-0, 170 pound catcher.  Performed well, going 2 for 6 with a double.  Lefty hits with a slightly open, slightly crouched stance w/ back ear hand location.  Shift of weight, leg kick and proper hand load.  Controls his body with the leg kick well, repeating the height and landing spot, which is slightly open.  Lower half works well.  Above avg bat speed in an up the middle to pull heavy approach.  Hung in well against some tough lefties.  Intriguing offensive profile w/ mix of average and power.  Defensively, shows quality target w/ quiet movements.  Gets a little stabby, affecting framing ability, but shows an idea of how to move pitches.  Ok release w/ avg arm strength.  Profiles as an offensive-minded catcher.

9/25/16 - 60 Time: 7.78, Pop Time: 2.08-2.15, Position Velocity:  C-68, Exit Velocity: 80
5-foot-11, 155-pound, LHH hits from a wider and slightly open stance with some higher hand positioning to start with, uses a very abbreviated leg kick with a short and closing stride with a tilt of the barrel to get loaded, lower half works but has trouble fully clearing his hips because of his closed position, swing plane is a little steep into the zone because of his hand height but showed lift at the end, showed potential to grow into some power with driven balls to right field in BP.  Defensively, showed good hands and footwork behind the plate, higher exchange led to a short arm action through an over-the-top release point, accurate throws to 2B, should improve arm strength with time.
