Donovan is a 5-foot-11, 150 pound switch-hitting catching prospect. Both swings begin out of a narrow, slightly open stance, with the hands set just off the back shoulder. Each swing uses a leg lift to get the swing started and stack the weight over the back leg. The right-handed swing uses a slightly more uphill path, yielding an exit velocity of 85 MPH. The left-handed stroke is a bit flatter, producing a lot of line drives and a 78 MPH exit velocity.

Defensively, Donovan was 77 MPH, with a pop time range of 1.94-2.03 seconds down to second base. His actions are athletic, he receives well and the arm is quick. He moves well transitioning into the throwing position. The hips and shoulders get aligned with second base, allowing the arm to work freely. He finishes over his front side and makes consistent throws on the bag.

5-foot-10, 140-pound switch hitting catcher. Bouncing back from an injury last year and looked good at the workout. Ran a 7,83 sixty on the laser at the event. The catching skill set is solid, throwing 72 mph down to second base with a pop time of 2.0. The receiving needs to continue to improve as he matures in age. Working on securing the catch and softening the glove are imperative to the position. The right -handed swing has a tee exit velocity of 78 mph and the left-handed swing has a tee exit velocity of 74 mph. The right-handed setup is even in base, front foot steps into the swing. The path needs to be flattened through contact. The left-handed setup is even in base, front foot steps into the swing. The path is flat to contact. The frame needs strength to aid the development of the swing.
