6-foot-1, 230-pounds, ran 7.76 60-yard dash, shows quick feet, although short in stride. Powerful right-handed swing, simple rhythm in the hands, large load syncs upper and lower half well, connects out front, creates easy leverage. 95 mph exit velocity off of tee. Behind the plate, Cates shows quick hands, slight length in the transfer, short arm action, and stays forward through throw. 75 mph down to 2B. Pop times ranged 2.00-2.19.

1.12.19
Cates has a strong, thick frame at 6-foot-1, 1230-pounds. The right-handed hitter can really accelerate the barrel through the zone with strength at contact and lift to finish. Showed gap power with a short path and top exit velocity of 95 mph. Behind the dish, he posted pop times of 2.0-2.19 with a top velocity from the crouch of 75 mph. Quick exchange, directional footwork, high exchange into a short, over the top arm swing.

09.23.17  
6-foot, 200-pound, sturdy frame. The right-handed hitter starts from a balanced, slightly open, crouched stance. Early-smooth load back, then down into his legs with rhythm, walks away from his hands, landing into a strong launch position. Short path on ball in the middle of the plate, strong top hand, flat path, does a nice job of getting extension through contact. Line drive power currently, middle of the field approach during batting practice. Behind the plate, Cates a quick exchange with average hands and somewhat fluid footwork. Posted pop times of 2.07-2.18 to second base, hopping early into a staggered stance with inconsistent accuracy. Short arm stroke from a high-¾ slot with effort and a 73 mph velocity from the crouch.

The right-hander works from a high-¾ slot with a short arm stroke. Directional tall-and-fall delivery, level shoulders, late hand separation, lands square on his heel. His fastball ranged from 75-78 mph with slight arm side run. Slider ranges from 66-69 mph with 11/5 shape and some depth. His changeup flashed arm side fade at 68 mph with fastball arm speed.
