A left-handed hitting catcher, advanced on both sides of the field, one of the better catchers around, will be attending the future games this year. At the plate, is balanced, uses a whole field approach. The stance is even at the shoulders, lower relaxed loose hands. Lower half is under control, small pick, hands are back in a loaded position. The swing is down to level to up, stays through it, finishes high with two hands above the shoulders. The swing is more line drive to the gaps, creates backspin to the baseball.

The hands are soft on the catch, works low and out front. Big follow for me, grinder and a gamer.

Ran a 4.78 down the line on his dig. Defensively, threw 70 mph down to second base. Pop time of 2.2 as the transfer and footwork need to continue to improve as he matures. The receiving needs to be softened up and worked on. Getting on a pitching machine and softening the catch is a must. Solid player with the bat.

The arm works out of a higher slot, needs to get out over frontside, will help with flight of baseball, will get more downhill plane. Good looking young left-handed hitter, big time potentially to really swing the bat.
