09/18/2011 - College PREP - Adrian (Detroit), MI Francisco is a tall, broad and athletic looking catcher that will graduate in 2012. Defensively he shows a solid base, good arm strength, is in-line to throw and he throws downhill. He keeps his eyes on the ball when receiving and centers well when blocking. He needs to try and quicken his feet to throw, anticipate better when blocking and finish his throws to second. At the plate he has an athletic stance with a short stride and balance throughout his swing. He shows the ability to keep his head still and a line drive approach to all fields. He needs to try and get better pre-pitch separation with his hands, develop more rhythm, and get through the pitch better with more extension. Foot speed and continued hard work in a few areas will continue to help Francisco become the player he is striving to be.
