David is a solid catcher who showed good concentration behind the plate. He is a sure receiver with sound fundamentals when blocking balls in the dirt. His hands are quick and he demonstrates the proper footwork when throwing. Speed/agility drills will help with his foot speed and improve his mobility behind the plate. Offensively, David does a good job battling during each at bat. His swing is aggressive with power potential to the pull side. He will need to focus on letting the ball travel while keeping his front side closed longer.
