5-foot-9, 150-pound left-handed hitting catcher and right-handed pitcher. He ran a7.4 sixty at the event. The skill set behind the dish is very good, he threw 74 mph down to second base with a 1.9 pop time. The receiving is solid and he moves well behind the dish. The bat has an exit velocity of 86 mph as he continues to get stronger and more physical. The setup is wide in base and he uses a toe tap as he gets into the swing. The path is out and around to contact and his hands work free. On the mound, the fastball sat 79-80 mph with arm side run to it. The spin pitch was 68-70 and big in shape. The changeup was a knuckle ball at 74 mph. The delivery has crossfire to the feet and the slot is 3/4. The glove is pulled across the hitters face as he makes his way into foot strike. The arm works clean and quick.

5-foot-9, 150-pound left-handed hitting catcher. Showed very goo athleticsm at the workout. Ran a 7.45 sixty at the workout. The receiving is solid behind the dish as he catches with confidence. The transfer is quick as he gets rid of it. The slot is a bit low during the release. Threw 73 mph down to second base with a pop time of 1.81, very accurate. The bat has an exit velocity of 83 mph. The setup is wide in base and he uses a toe tap as the ball approaches the hitting zone. The path is sweepy and he gets the barrel head to the zone quickly. He showed very well as he threw well, took a solid BP and showed well in the game. Solid prospect.  On the mound, the fastball sat 79-80 mph with arm side action on it. The spin pitch is big in shape, sitting at 68-69 mph. The changeup is a developing pitch. The delivery is online and the slot is 3/4. The lift is clean and the arm works freely.

5-foot-8, 145-pound catcher and pitcher. I like a his game a bunch of watching him workout. The skill set behind the dish is very good. He threw 75 mph with a pop time of 1.95. The feet and transfer are quick and on point. The glove is soft and he moves athletically. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 76 mph. The setup is wide in base and he uses a knee to knee timing mechanism on the bottom half as the ball approaches the hitting zone. The path is uphill to contact. The addition of physical strength will aid the development of the bat. On the mound, the fastball sat 79-80 mph with arm side action. The spin pitch was 68-70 mph, solid in shape. His third pitch is a knuckle ball at 71 mph. The delivery is online with the feet and the slot is above 3/4. The post foot is on top of the rubber and the stride is clean and the front shoulder follows. He is quick arm right-hander at a young age. Good looking player.

Cali has an athletic build at 5-foot-8, 145 pounds. The right-handed hitting catcher shows an interesting skill-set.  The swing is balanced, with a simple, direct bat path. He showed a tee exit velocity of 74 mph at the event. The stance is square to the pitcher, with good pre pitch motion.  The hands are relaxed and get to a strong position during the load. Once the bat starts into the hitting zone, the hand speed is evident. He extends well through contact, staying on plane.

Behind the plate, he showed a quick transfer and athletic feet.  The initial set up is square, with the glove set in the middle of the chest.  The feet are light and quick as he transfers to throw. The hips and shoulders get square to the target, allowing the arm to stay in a good arm-swing. He also showed the ability to receive well during the event and showcased a strong arm, with a 75 mph reading on his throws. 

On the mound, the arm-speed and athleticism were on display.  The mechancis were simple. He uses a simple step back to get to the balance position.  Once there, he’s able to gather before heading down the mound with good direction. The clean mechanics allow for the arm-swing to be consistant and quick.  This produced a fastball that sat 76-79 mph, with late arm side run. The breaking ball was 66-68 mph and he looked to be fighting just being under the pitch.  He also showed a change-up with good action at 70-71 mph.

Overall, I liked the skill-set.  The arm talent is good and I think he should continue to gain velocity with additional maturity.
