11/16/2008 - College PREP - Shreveport, LA Chris is a C with a solid, athletic looking body that is well suited for the position. He shows best at the plate, where he has slightly average ability and power. Swing path is compact and direct to the baseball. He shows a feel for the barrel, with ball jumping off bat when centered. He flashes gap to gap power. Power numbers will continue to increase as he learns to utilize his lower half more efficiently through the swing. Arm strength is well below average and must get on a strict long toss program to aid in building arm strength and lowering pop times. Blocking skills are average as he utilizes his body well. He is a tough kid and is not afraid of the baseball. Receiving skills are near average and need further development for the next level. Chris has abilities with a lot of room to improve.
