07/29/2018 - College PREP - Norfolk, VA Brendin is a lean catcher who will graduate in 2024. Behind the plate, feet are aggressive and active as he works in line to his target, through a clean transfer / exchange. Pop times show in the range of 2.25-2.50 with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and he works to get rid of the baseball quicker. Glove action is soft and he sticks in the zone. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process and deaden balls well out front. At the plate, he shows a squared setup. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields well through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. Bendin has abilities with time and room to progress his game.
