Carl is a tall/solid/athletic catcher who will graduate in 2014. He possesses both exceptional arm strength (90 mph) and speed (6.83 60/yd, 4.0 home to first). Behind the plate, Carl has quick footwork/exchange, firm hands and he is athletic blocking the ball. In the outfield Carl has an aggressive approach, good footwork and his arm plays well. He can improve by getting behind fly balls more and playing through ground balls. At the plate, he has good extension, lower half and power but he needs to be more consistent barreling up the ball. Adjusting his swing path from uphill to on-plane will help with the consistency. As long as Carl continues to work he should be a player to watch in the future.
