01/12/2018 - Baseball Factory National Spring Training at Pirate City Ethen is a lean catcher who will graduate in 2018. Behind the plate, feet are aggressive and active as he works in line to his target, through a clean transfer / exchange. Pop times 2.60 - 2.70 with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and he works to get rid of the baseball quicker. Glove action is soft and he sticks in the zone. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process but needs to work to get down quicker. At the plate, he shows an athletic setup. Hands are loose and work through an aggressive approach. He shows a feel for the barrel with power showing best to the pull side. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. Ethen has abilities with time and room to progress his game.
