06/19/2008 - Omaha Pro Select Training and Tournament - 2008 Hammond lowered his release times quite a bit, his best went down from 2.20 to 2.00 and his throws this event were all below 2.20. His release was quick and his arm action was short and compact. He was aggressive blocking, did a good job of keeping the ball in front of him. He showed excellent leadership skills and did a great job of calling pitches, certainly appears to have a good feel for the game at his position. Needs to work on staying lower to receive, hands and glove action have room to improve as well. At the plate, he showed excellent bat speed and power potential. Had lift and leverage in his swing. Must learn to be more than just a pull hitter, let the ball travel and work the barrel to contact from the inside. Has plenty of ability to work with. Catch and throw potential combined with power potential makes him an interesting catching prospect.
