12/27/2012 - Pirate City Christmas Camp and Tournament Brendan performed well at the Pirate City Christmas Tournament handling his pitching staff and centering balls at the plate. As a catcher he is solid all-around with the ability to get strikes for his pitchers, along with the ability to block balls in the dirt. His times to 2B continue to improve (now down to 2.2) and will keep getting better with a cleaner exchange and refined footwork. At the plate, Brendan has a disciplined approach with good awareness of the strike zone. He also has strong hands and flashes the ability to hit the ball hard. As he becomes more consistent with his timing and load, he will be a difficult out for opposing pitchers. He also improved his 60 yard dash to 7.46 seconds. The future is bright for Brendan as a catcher who understands the game.
