07/16/2019 - College PREP - Sauget (St. Louis), IL JT is a lean catcher who will graduate in 2022. Behind the plate, pop times showed in the 2.46 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. He shows a squared setup and sticks ball in zone. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process but needs to work to get down sooner to improve grade. At the plate he shows an open setup. Hands are loose and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. With 3 years to further develop, JT has abilities with time and room to progress his game.
