07/11/2015 - Cape Cod Select Training & Competition - Session 1
Caelan worked out primarily as a backstop at his most recent outing with Baseball Factory. His work ethic, and drive are commendable attributes that are clear separators for Caelan. Offensively, he had a tall setup and was consistently on-time to get to his hitting position. He whipped the barrel through the zone on a direct path and was loose through the zone with the barrel. He worked to keep his hands in a strong position to hit and generated the weight to the balls of his feet. Defensively, he had a solid base in his setup and showed carry to his throws. He worked to become more sure with the glove, and should continue to do receiving drills to boost feel. All in all - Caelan is a young player (2018) that has the intangibles to continue building his game throughout high school.

Caelan continues to show improvement at his positions as C/1B. Behind the plate, he presents a large/wide target with a flexible position. He sways his body well to catch the ball in the middle and does a solid job of blocking the ball back to the plate. Working on receiving / glove hand skills and working on lateral quickness/distance will improve Caelan's catching abilities. At the plate, he showed a good, balanced setup with a soft stride. He does a good job of tracking the ball, which lets him work deep into counts. By leveling out his swing and taking his hands to the ball, these adjustments will produce a more powerful, consistent swing. Caelan is a big backstop with strong legs and a willingness to learn, desirable characteristics of a next level player.

Caelan is a big strong C/1B, whose body fits the position well. Behind the plate he shows a strong arm allowing him to control the running game, he also has the ability to make plays in foul territory. He needs to continue to work on his blocking position, and being softer with the glove hand when receiving. At the plate Caelan is big and strong and displays good bat speed, while maintaining a balanced swing allowing him to take aggressive swings. He needs to work on leveling his bat path leading to more line drives, and balls in the gaps.
02/28/2014 - Yankees Spring Training Experience
Caelan is a strong, physical kid who soaks up information. Defensively, he displays good angles and big body when blocking. He has a strong arm but needs to work on getting his body in a better spot. Stretching to gain more flexibility behind the plate will help improve overall grades. Offensively, Behn displays good strength and the ball comes off his barrel well. His lower half gets through well but can focus on consistently finishing. His hands stay inside the ball too much, focus on the barrel winning the race. Overall Caelan is a great kid and will continue to improve as he works on the adjustments above.
07/26/2013 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City
Caelan is a coachable kid who has a good knowledge of the game. Behind the plate he receives the ball well and is a good communicator. Areas for improvement are blocking, footwork, exchange and long toss for arm strength. Caelan showed a good knowledge of first base and a willingness to square the ball up but he needs to improve picking the ball and also his footwork around the base can get better. At the plate he has an athletic setup, decent load, centered balance, good rhythm/lower half and above average power. He needs to fix his grip, work on a better stride/load and be aggressive in the zone.
