5-foot-8, 152-pound, solid, strong athletic. A right-handed hitting catcher, the swing has life and whip to it, swing is much more level and flat through the zone, has made significant improvements. The approach is gap to gap, shows to have above average pop and power. The tee exit velocity was 83 mph. Defensively, hands are strong receiving the baseball, gets around the baseball, and recognizes when he needs to block, softens the baseball in blocks. The footwork is quick in transfer, gains ground, arm action is short clocked at 76 mph from the chute down to second, strength has increased. Joey attended this workout to help receive the bullpens, was solid behind the plate, good follow, works hard and competes at a very high level.

5-foot-8, 150-pound, average athletic frame, is flexible and movements are loose. The frame is strong, hands have strength to them. A right-handed hitter, the stance is slightly open to even, the hands are held just slightly above the shoulder. The hands get back and up into a good hitting position, uses a leg kick for timing. When the swing is level, drives the baseball to both gaps with authority. Finishes it with one hand, the tee exit velocity was 84 mph and ran a 4.75 from home to first. In game play made solid contact in two at bats. Defensively, shows to a have a solid arm behind the dish, clocked at 71 mph, with some carry to it, ball comes out of ¾ slot. The arm action is pretty short, with no hesitation to it. The pop times were 2.03 to 2.06, throws were on the proper side of the bag. The setup is low, slightly side saddled. The hands are strong, gets around the baseball well, works the low pitch. Worked out at shortstop as well, the feet and hands work well together, showed a solid arm, clocked at 74 mph, across the diamond. Moved well to the glove side, backhand needs to be more relaxed. Projects for me as a catcher, the ability to swing the bat, and shows good actions and feel behind the plate.

Second PBR event for Joe. He continues to impress, work ethic is very good. The swing is advanced for his age. Hits from the right side, the tee exit velocity was 79 mph, climbed a little from previous workout. The stance is balanced and slightly open. Hands are set just above the shoulders and are in a good hitting position. Gains some ground with stride. The path to the ball is level across the chest and has a one-handed finish, gets through the ball well. Balls come off the bat well and stays in the middle. Behind the dish, his setup is relaxed and sits on the flats of his feet. The hands are soft and he gets underneath the low ball well. The arm registered at 70 mph on throws down to second. Times to second were exactly the same as last workout 2.02-2.06. Worked out at shortstop as well. Hands and feet worked well together, needs to work on the slow roller. The arm was 71 mph across the diamond. The frame has plenty of room to fill out. Has a chance to hit at some point.

A right-handed hitting catcher, who showed very well at this event. At the plate hits from even and shorter stance, hands are set above shoulder close to his ear. Uses a high leg kick for his timing, path is flat through the zone and has a long, big finish. The tee exit velocity was 78, swings the bat with some authority, needs to keep his head still through contact. Behind the plate, the feet are close together, could widen the base a little. Receives the ball well, hands are strong and gets behind the ball. Transfer is clean and quick, arm path is real short. Gains ground when making throws down to second. Pop times were 2.13-2.25 and velocity on throws was 66. The ability to receive is advanced, needs to gain arm strength, should happen through strength building and natural matuarization. The frame is thin and on the smaller size, strength is a must.
