05/06/2012 - College PREP - Long Island, NY Francis is a broad catcher who has a strong lower 1/2. Offensively, he displays a tall/open setup, solid load, and short/square stride. He has a quiet hand separation, good balance, and fast bat speed. He makes consistent contact and sprays the ball gap-to-gap. Better rhythm will help him to improve his timing and overall hitting abilities. Defensively behind the plate, he is flexible and shows a low target. Blocking, he does well anticipating and deadening the ball in front. Getting to his feet quicker and a quicker exchange will help to improve his pop times.
