3/06/22

Clarkson definitely looks the part of an everyday catcher, at 6-foot-2, 210 pounds with an athletic build and a strong lower half. During his round of defense, Clarkson popped in the 2.00-t0-2.09 range, one of the quickest of the entire event. While behind the dish, Clarkson showed off a quick exchange and a solid one that topped at 79 mph, with all throws being accurate to the bag. At the dish, Clarkson worked out of a stock setup, and an up-down stride. He swung directly to impact with solid barrel speed (72 mph), and exit speeds as high as 96 mph. Clarkson used the whole field, while mostly driving balls to the pull side.
