At 6'1"/215 pounds, Cade has the strong, durable frame that can handle the rigors of the catching position. He showed very well behind the dish in Arizona with advanced receiving skills, a knack for smothering balls in the dirt and a strong arm/efficient release combination that led to times as low as 1.96. Cade also swung the bat well and showed pull side power (96 mph exit velocity) both in BP and in game, driving a double to deep LF. This is definitely the look of a quality prospect who plays a premium position.

This athletic catcher shows a bright future on the diamond with the makings of a special type player at the next level. Offensively, he has athletic/smooth actions with fluid rhythm to load. He gets good hand separation and delivers the barrel with leverage, resulting in a barrel explosion (99 mph exit velocity) with the ball coming off well of his barrel from both sides of the plate. With flexion and good sway he pockets pitches with a soft/sure mitt. He shows off his athletic abilities through the blocking process as he is a wall behind the plate. Pop times showed in the 1.89 range with accuracy / on line carry (90 mph velocity) on his throws. Cade has a tremendous upside and will get looks from the top collegiate coaches and pro scouts with the makings of a solid 2019 draft guy.
