06/16/2013 - College PREP - Hoover (Birmingham), AL Eric is a solid, thick, catcher who will graduate in 2015. Behind the plate, Eric has soft hands, playable feet, and he moves well laterally. He blocks well, his exchange is clean, and he throws with accuracy and carry from a long arm action. Quicker feet, blocking sooner, and a quicker release can help catching improve. Offensively, Eric has a square set-up, good balance, and he makes consistent contact. He can work the ball gap to gap, he uses his lower 1/2' and he flashes pop in his bat. Hitting can improve with a shorter swing and looser actions.
