Physical catcher with athleticism. Displayed some hand strength handling two top end arms. Throws to second displayed plenty of carry and were fairly accurate around the bag. At the plate Cotten has a balanced athletic setup, level path to contact, and finishes the lower half with some aggression. Has some pull side power in the swing and barrel stays in zone on contact. Had some long foul balls to the pull side early in the first game and then used the middle and backside of the field in some following at bats.

We scout blogged Cotten a few weeks ago and he continues to get better. Power to the pullside and is a workhorse behind the plate. Had a few hits through the left side of the infield and showed some speed and athleticism out of the box. Cotten is a strong physical presence offensively and defensively for the Clippers and should only get better.

Strong physical frame standing around 5-foot-11. Continues to impress offensively and defensively. Defensively he handled the workload on the day. There were a lot of 59-foot breaking balls on the day, so Cotten got plenty of blocking work in. Did a nice job of handling the running game, as he threw a missile backside on a double steal with the runner sliding around the tag. Throws showed carry and were in line. Offensively he had a nice day with multiple quality at bats working deep in counts and getting two hits with his first at bat resulting in a hard line drive over the third baseman. Cotten's final at bat of the day resulted in a RBI single down the third-base line. Cannot miss 2020 prospect this spring that could have a big year at Grafton.

Preseason All-State II

Cotten is 5-11 with an athletic frame that has some projection left to it. He hits from the right side from an athletic open stance, short stride on line, loads back with a slight wrap, hips rotate completely with violence, and he maintains some balance during his swing. Short path and very fast bat, explosive batspeed and good strength at contact with extension through the ball. Showed good approach working gap to gap, slightly uphill line drive swing has natural loft to it, doubles power to all fields present with potential for more, exit velocity was 89. Behind the plate, receives with a wide base and presents a good strike, shows sway behind the ball and works down to up well. Gains ground towards second during a quick, clean exchange. Throws from a three-quarters arm slot, short arm action, position velocity was 79 and pop times were 1.96-2.03.
