02/06/2022 - Official Player Development Membership - Pensacola, FL Gatlin is a young, 2-way player who catches and plays 1st base. Behind the plate, Gatlin has a presentable glove and playable hands and feet. He tracks well, tries hard to block, and throws with solid direction to 2nd base with pop times as low as 3.53 seconds. Catching can improve with quicker footwork and added arm strength. At 1B, Gatlin is a good sized target, he mores well to the ball, and fields out in front. His exchange is clean and he throws with a 3/4 arm slot with direction to his target. Abilities at 1st base can improve if Gatlin can quicken feet, play more through, and loosen arm action. At the plate, Gatlin has a crouched stance, a short stride, and a rhythmic swing. He gets the barrel through the zone and shows the ability to spray the ball to all fields.
