Del Rio is a lanky 6-foot 150 pound sophomore catcher. Behind the plate he was a consistent 2.16-2.18 with his pop time. His mechanics are raw, but shows considerable upside. At the plate he hits from the left side, looks athletic and showed a quick bat. He took several pitches out over the right field fence during the event. On occasion he has a long swing, but was able to barrel up the ball on most pitches. Del Rio is another young prospect worth following in the coming years.
