04/08/2018 - College PREP - Plano (DFW), TX David is a solid, athletic catcher with 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 1.97-2.10 with accuracy/carry through his target. Arm strength is outstanding (85 mph exit velocity) and he will control the running game with his feet/arm. He is flexible and displays a solid setup and utilizes his body well through the blocking process. At the plate, he continues to shine through a squared setup. He gets to a strong launch position and shows quick hands (90 mph exit velocity) that generate bat speed to and through contact, creating extension. Barrel accuracy is a plus with strength in his swing as the baseball explodes off the bat when centered with gap-to-gap pop. With 2 years to further develop, David has the makings of a special type player and will get looks from collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.
