10/15/2017 - College PREP - Birmingham, AL Cole is a solid, strong catcher who has a promising future on the diamond. Behind the plate, feet are active as he works in line to his target through a clean transfer / exchange as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Pop times showed a range of 2.20-2.32 with accuracy / carry on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Hands are soft / sure and he tracks balls well through the receiving process but will benefit by letting ball travel more. He uses his body well through the blocking process and moves well laterally, centering all balls out front. At the plate, he continues to shine. Hands are quick (81 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path, creating extension. He has strength in his swing and shows a solid feel for the barrel through a line drive approach. With 4 years to further develop, Cole has a ton of potential with time and room to progress his game.
