Brendan is an exciting young prospect (2016 grad). He profiles best as an athletic catcher, though he is versatile enough to also play the corner outfield spots. Behind the plate he is flexible, sits quietly to receive and shows a feel for the position. He is solid on balls in the dirt, though he can continue to get into blocking position more efficiently. Some refinements to his set-up and footwork will continue to help, but the foundation is there for a high quality catcher. At the plate Brendan shows a mature approach: tracking the ball well, spraying line drives to all fields and controlling the barrel. More strength in his lower half will benefit him across the board and help to accelerate his development. Overall, Brendan is a prospect to watch over the next few years.
