07/20/2020 - All-In Membership - Stockton (Sacramento), CA Joe is a young (2025 grad) R/R catcher who works hard on the diamond. Behind the dish, he sits in well with a solid base and tracks pitches into a soft mitt, sticking the ball and framing well. He works hard laterally and uses his gear to keep the ball in front. Transfer is clean with accurate throws down to 2B - pop times at 2.71. Pop times will continue to drop as he works to gain ground and increase his arm strength (long toss). As a hitter, this leadoff type has a knack for squaring the ball up. He takes a hack at pitches he likes, barrels the ball up and drives it back up the middle of the field. Swinging on a more direct path while creating more extension through contact will help to improve skills at the plate. Only a 2025 grad - Joe has a solid skill-set with still a ton of time to develop and physically mature.
