11/16/2017 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 12-14) Colin is a lean catcher who will graduate in 2024. At the plate is where he shows best through an athletic / open setup. Hands are loose and work through an aggressive approach. He works to stay inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. Hitting grade will improve as he works to get stride foot down sooner to work on time. Behind the plate, feet are aggressive and active as he works in line to his target, through a clean transfer / exchange. Pop times showed in the 5.00 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and he works to get rid of the baseball quicker. Glove action is soft and he sticks in the zone but needs to present a lower target. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process but needs to work to get down quicker. With 7 years to further develop, Colin has abilities with time and room to progress his game.
