Cal is a tall, broad, and athletic catcher who has a promising future on the diamond. At the plate is where he shows best, displaying tremendous hitting / power potential through an open setup. Hands are quick (89 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. Barrel accuracy is a plus with the baseball exploding off the bat when centered. Behind the dish, he utilizes his feet well in working in line to his target through a clean transfer / exchange. Pop times show a range of 2.03-2.09 with accuracy and zip on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. He displays a soft glove and sticks balls well in the zone. He uses his body through the blocking process, centering balls well out front and he is a wall behind dish. Receiving / blocking skills show as outstanding tools that will play well at the level. With 2 years to further develop, Cal has the makings of a special type player and will get looks from the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.
