Dominic showed similar abilities both behind the plate and offensively during his last workout in Jupiter, FL. He has a pro body behind the dish, displaying quick feet, soft / firm hands, and very good body control. Dominic blocks and receives very well, he has good lateral movements, and lowered his pop times to 1.81 with carry and good direction to 2nd base. More glove extension to the ball receiving, and a quicker transfer will only help very good defensive abilities further improve. Offensively, Dominic shows very good balance, strong hands, and plus bat speed. He swings in good rhythm, makes hard / solid contact, and gets good extension through the ball. If Dominic can let the ball travel deeper and avoid wrapping the bat some, hitting will continue to get better.
