12/27/2011 - Pirate City Christmas Camp and Tournament - Session 2
Brandon showed well both offensively and defensively during his time in Pirate City. He has a great offensive approach, he stays balanced, and his bat speed is excellent. He has a level, short to long swing, he makes hard contact, and he gets his lower 1/2 through. Behind the plate, Brandon has a low target, good pre-pitch actions, and he catches the ball cleanly. He looks the ball in, his exchange is clean, and he throws with accuracy and carry to his target. Brandon calls a good game defensively, and he truly understands the game.

Brandon is a strong and solid catcher that will graduate in 2012. Behind the plate he shows good pre-pitch setup with body control and no wasted movements. He has a clean exchange to throw making accurate throws to his target with good carry. He has soft hands while receiving and has good athleticism for a catcher. He needs to work on staying low to throw and have better anticipation to balls in the dirt. At the plate he shows an open stance with a solid load, short stride and balance throughout his swing. He makes great use of his lower half showing fast bat speed. He gets good extension after contact and is a gap-to-gap style hitter. Brandon needs to continue to work on his speed and quickness to develop into a solid player at the next level.
