11/11/2010 - Pirate City Select Training Christian is a young, 2-way player who Catches and Pitches. He currently projects best behind the plate, but still has plenty of time to improve overall abilities. Behind the plate, Christian is a good receiver and communication, and he has good / athletic actions. He has a nice Catcher's arm slot, and good strength and accuracy for his age. If Christian can let the ball travel deeper, firm up his wrist, and improve his transfer, Catching grades can continue to improve. On the mound, Christian has a balanced delivery, good front side lead, and good direction toward the plate. He has a free and easy arm action, good arm speed, and he shows good promise on the hill. If Christian can improve his tempo, and work on top of his breaking ball, mound effectiveness will get better. Offensively, Christian has a quiet head, a good set-up, and he shows the ability to hit to all fields. He showed both pull side and opposite field power at the event. Hitting can get better if Christian can get his barrel through the zone longer, and finish with more lower 1/2.
