Positional Profile: C Solid defensive catch and throw catcher that will add depth offensively.
Body: 6-0, 190-pounds. Medium, muscular, durable catchers frame
Defense: 2.08-2.19 pop times. Has a desire to block balls in the dirt. Will have to work on flexibility and lateral movement
Arm: C - 74 mph. Average. Accurate and proper technique with some carry on throws to 2B. Pop times in the 2.01-2.13 range.
Hit: RHH. Wide, sturdy base, open stance, neutral hand placement Minimal hand load, aggressive, straight to ball when he fires hands. You will rarely see swing and miss because of excellent early connection metrics. Puts the ball in play at a high rate and takes what he is given.
Power: Exit velocities in the 93-98 MPH range suggesting there is more power to come. Hard hit ball % is impressive at 89%, even for a small sample size.
Run: 7.38 runner in the 60.

SoCal ProCase:

Body: 6-foot, 190-pounds. Athletic build with room for refinement. Strong through lower half with an ideal catchers frame. 

Hit: Right-handed hitter. Sets up with a slightly open, wide stance before using a slight leg lift trigger. Maintains hands near ear during coil before attacking the inner half of the ball. Bat speed averaged 64.4 mph with rotational acceleration of 13.3g through the zone. Those metrics alone put Crandall in the lower third of collegiate players, however when you factor in his 90% on plane percentage you have a player who is consistently squaring up balls and spraying them to all fields. 

Power: Trackman data shows Crandall had an average exit speed of 87.7 with a peak of 93.6 mph. His velocities were fairly consistent with balls hit to the opposite field of which a third of his were. Crandall at times got stuck on his front side causing his barrel to lag behind, however when he cleared his front side he was able to handle pitches both inside and outside while being able to drive balls with some power. 

Field: Shows athleticism in setup which is slightly lower than neutral. Showed quiet hands, with nimble footwork and a clear understanding of setting up hitters with his pitch calling. Blocked well staying low on balls before recovering quickly while also showing good lateral movement. 

Arm: Pops: 2.01-2.13, 77 mph. Shows a quick release with clean throwing mechanics. Transitions are clean and fast with hands working very well in unison together with the feet. Arm strength is present and should continue to improve which will be necessary for his progress. 

Run: 7.58 60 yard dash on grass surface.

Orange County Preseason All-State - solid overall catchers build at 5-foot-11 184 pounds. Showed the skill set of a well coached catcher as he received well, repeated his catching mechanics and kept his body inline on his throws to second. Throwdowns were consistent as 4 of 5 throws were on the bag while averaging 2.03-2.11 on his pop time. Slight pause in his arm swing slows down his throwdowns overall and leaves room for immediate improvement on his pop time with a quicker release. Simple approach at the plate as the lower half uses a simple toe-lift trigger to set himself up for contact. Line drive ability to all fields with bat to ball contact. Strong overall build and lack of explosiveness with the lower half show untapped power and with the right adjustments could make an immediate impact on the uncommitted market.
