07/18/2017 - College PREP - Sauget (St. Louis), IL Hunter is a solid, athletic catcher who is a prospect on the diamond. At the plate is where he shows best, displaying outstanding hitting / power potential through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (84 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive approach. He works to stay inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap to gap pop. Barrel accuracy is a plus with the baseball jumping off the bat when centered. Behind the plate, feet are aggressive and active as he works in line to his target, through a clean transfer / exchange as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Pop times show in the 2.06 range with accuracy and carry to his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. He displays an athletic setup with soft hands that stick balls in the zone, displaying a soft glove. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process and is a wall behind dish. With 2 years to further develop, Hunter has the makings of a special type player and will get looks from the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.
