Maryland 2018 Rankings Breakdown: 71-80


RJ Price C / OF / John Carroll, MD / 2018

6/20/17 - MD Top Prospect Games

Price is lengthy right-handed hitting catcher. At the plate, he starts slightly open before employing a quick leg lift. His weight comes off his backside as he strides and his barrel is pushed through the zone on a relatively level path. He gets some extension. He may have trouble handling higher level pitching until he learns to stay into his backside and legs better. His hand and bat speed allow him to compensate. He should add gap power as he continues to develop. Exit velocity of 90mph. Behind the plate, he is a solid receiver who minimizes wasteful movements. He has a quick transfer and solid arm strength which translates into a sub-2.0 pop-time. Should be able to stick behind the plate. Price has a lot of room to develop and will help whichever program he joins.
