Futures Preview (6/4/16)
Whooley is a 5-foot-9 170-pound 2019 catcher with broad shoulders and a solid, athletic frame, ran the 60 in 7.16 seconds, an exceptional time for a catcher. Offensively- starts with his stance slightly opened and uses a big stride with a fluid hand load. Took one of the better batting practices of the day, with line drives deep into both gaps and down the left field line. Whooley viciously torques his hips for power, and his hands are controlled to start, but explosive toward the baseball, Exit Velocity: 78. Defensively- Whooley showcased superb receiving skills and a quiet body. Pop Times were consistently at 2.00-flat, at a Velocity of 73 to second base. Quick exchange and sound footwork with momentum carrying toward the second base.
