Prospect Spotlight

NOTES FROM THE FIELD, SOUTH ATLANTIC LEAGUE:

  • Large, physical frame w/ muscular proportions. Has the durability to catch and doesn’t look too large for the position. Looks the part.
  • Short stroke, direct to the ball w/ enough present strength for hard contact when squared. Heavy pass through zone, questionable barrel-control. 
  • Muscular frame drives the ball and gives a chance for power. Will show up more in games as he matures and adds swing lift. 
  • Thick throughout w/ heavy stride, speed is not a large part of his game.
  • Advanced glovework for age/level, like the mix of physicality and actions at catcher. Quiet targets, sound receiving and blocking. 
  • Limited look at arm, at least avg if not a tick more. 

SUMMARY: Interesting catching prospect w/ good size, defensive tools, and chance for raw power. Young for level and off to a hot start in Low-A. Longshot prospect; tools to fill big league role w/ continued development across the board.
