02/18/2018 - College PREP - Crosby (Houston), TX Ian is an athletic 2019 Catching prospect with a strong lower half. Behind the dish, Ian has an athletic primary and secondary stance. He presents a low target and tries to work behind the ball. He leads with his glove to block and controls the ball with his chest. Continuing to create movement to the ball before his throws will allow him to have more fluidity in his release. At the plate, Ian starts in an open stance and loads his hand back into the drive position. He has pre pitch rhythm and stays balanced through contact. Ian will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
