Caleb is an athletic and talented 2023 2-way prospect that works hard and several adjustments throughout the week. Behind the dish, Caleb fields his position well and shows leadership skills. He needs to continue to work on a balanced stance and flexibility in his hips. Presents a low target and working behind the ball will increase his ability to receive the ball. Leading with his glove to glove and getting his lower half down in an athletic position will allow him to control balls in the dirt with his chest. At the plate, Caleb starts in an athletic stance, loads his hands back, and keeps a quiet head. He needs to attack the inside part of the ball, create backside rotation and get his front foot down on time. On the bump, Caleb gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and keeps a strong front side. He needs to drive the lower half toward the plate, work north to south, and increase the tempo on the mound. His fastball sits 46-50 mph but developing a changeup will his skills set on the bump. Caleb will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
