06/01/2019 - 2019 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's National West Cole is an athletic and talented 2020 catching prospect. Behind the dish, Cole presents a big target, he has smooth actions to the ball, and controls pitches in the strike zone consistently. He has a clean exchange, a quick release, and a plus arm with a 1.82 pop time. He does a good job blocking with proper mechanics as well. At the plate, Cole is a switch hitter that starts in an open and tall stance from both sides of the plate. He loads his hands back into the drive position, stays balanced through contact, and hits off a firm front side. From the right side, Cole has plus bat speed and shows power to the right side. On the left side, Cole stays flat to the ball, he has a smooth load, and sprays the ball to all fields. Cole will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
