Brock is an attractive commodity to coaches at all levels - a switch-hitting catcher. Behind the plate he shows excellent arm strength and a clean release that is demonstrated in his times to 2B that dip under the 2.0 mark. He receives well and shows the leadership qualities that you look for in a catcher. He also is solid on balls in the dirt - one of those few guys with a "soft" chest that naturally deadens balls in front. At the plate, Brock is more advanced from LH side. He hits from a solid base, has rhythm and flashes some power to the pull side. Overall, this is an exciting young combination of tools and playability that will help a program at that next level.

Keener continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Arm strength has improved, now showing as outstanding with throws displaying life, accuracy, and on line carry through his target. Pop times have dropped as he threw his lowest to date at 1.92. Receiving / blocking skills show as quality tools that will play well at the next level. At the plate, Brock shows as a switch hitter but currently projects better from the left side where he has improved. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a level swing path. He has strength in his swing with the baseball exploding off his bat when centered. At the event, he was 3 for 8 with a 2B. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and plays hard as he leaves everything out on the field.

Brock is a tall/lanky catcher who has solid abilities. Defensively, he shows plus skills as he sits in a low position and moves well laterally to block. He has a quick/clean exchange and gets rid of the ball, showing pop times as low as 1.96. He is sure handed and makes strong throws to his target. Offensively, he shows a square setup, solid load, and good balance. Brock makes consistent contact and hits line-drives. Smoother rhythm/timing will and by using more lower 1/2, his hitting abilities will improve.
