10/08/2018 - College PREP - Erie, PA Cole is a lean, athletic catcher who has a promising future on the diamond. Behind the dish, he utilizes his feet well in working in line to his target through a clean transfer / exchange as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Pop times show a range of 2.14-2.23 with accuracy on his throws. Time will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. He displays a soft glove and sticks balls well in the zone through an athletic setup. He uses his body through the blocking process, centering balls out front. At the plate, he continues to shine through a squared setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Hitting grade will continue to improve as he works to get stride foot down sooner to be on time. With 5 years to further develop, Cole has the makings of a special type player with plenty of upside.
