02/17/2013 - College PREP - Middletown (Hartford), CT Austin is a young catcher with a solid frame. Behind the plate, Austin has easy movements, playable hands and feet, and he keeps the ball in front. He has good direction to throw and he delivers the ball with accuracy from a long arm action. Quicker feet, sitting in lower, and added arm strength will improve defense. At the plate, Austin has a square set-up, a short stride, and average bat speed. He makes consistent contact and hits hard to the pull side. Hitting can improve with better balance, a more level swing, and improved timing.
