09/18/2011 - College PREP - Adrian (Detroit), MI Chris is a broad and thick catcher that will graduate in 2013. Behind the plate, he shows great blocking ability with good lateral quickness, anticipation and the ability to deaden the ball. He is aggressive out of the chute to throw squaring his shoulders and throwing with good life out of the hand. He needs to try and get a wider base, relax his glove hand and stay low to throw. His pop times were between 2.22-2.40 with inconsistent accuracy at times. He has to get both his lower half and upper half working together to be more consistent. At the plate he shows a solid set up with rhythm and good bat speed. He gets good whip through the zone and gets good extension after contact. Chris is a solid young player and needs to continue to work on foot speed and quickness to help improve defensively.
