12/29/2013 - College PREP - Swarthmore (Philadelphia), PA Jeff is a solid built catcher that will graduate this spring. Offensively, he has quick hands and displayed pull side pop. He showed decent barrel accuracy from a level path. Working to solidify his timing and staying loose will increase pop and contact consistency. Defensively, he presents his glove in front and receives with sure hands. He is accurate to throw, flashing pops as low as 2.26 seconds. More flexibility will allow Jeff to sit lower and present a lower target for pitchers. In all - Palermo is a raw catcher that has some fundamentals to build off of and improve to being an every day catcher.
