Ethan is an athletic and talented 2020 catching prospect that was eager to learn. He has a quiet primary and athletic secondary stance. He works behind the ball and controls pitches down in the zone. He leads with his glove to block and moves laterally well. He has a clean exchange, a quick release, and creates momentum in his lower half when throwing. At the plate, Ethan starts in an athletic stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and keeps a quiet head. He attacks the inside part of the ball, creates good contact, but needs to continue to create backside drive with his lower half. Ethan shows the ability to pull the ball but needs to be more aggressive on fastball over the plate in order to drive the ball to the opposite side of the field. Ethan will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
