10/20/2019 - College PREP - Sauget (St. Louis), IL 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 through a quick transfer / exchange as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Pop times showed in the 2.03 range with accuracy and carry (83 mph velocity) on his throws. He tracks balls well and sticks balls in the zone. He utilizes his body through the blocking process, centering balls well out front. Receiving / blocking skills are quality tools that will play well at the next level. At the plate, he shows a tall, open setup. Hands are quick (83 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. Power will continue to increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. With 2 years to further develop, Cole has a lot of potential and will get looks from the collegiate coaches as he continues to progress his game.
