5-11, 170-pound catcher had a strong workout where he showed increases in all his numbers from last summer.  Medium, athletic frame w/ well-proportioned lean strength, projectable, has just started filling out his frame.  Offensively, hits w/ a straight on, slightly crouched stance w/ very short hand rhythm into stride and short load.  Simple, repeatable swing w/ still head, barrel feel.  All fields approach w/ lot of line drives when right.  Can get rotational at times, learning to get lower half in sync consistently.  Projectable pull power.  Athletic catcher prototype, shows speed that is uncommon for the position.  As a receiver, presents quality low target w/ very short glove rest.  Quiet receiver.  Learning to stick the baseball consistently.  Has an idea of how to frame, move his glove around to present the pitch as a strike.  Tools to be an above average receiver.  As a thrower, shows a quick release w/ good footwork and carry to target arm strength.  Maximizes his tools, fundamentally sound thrower.
