09/13/2015 - College PREP - La Verne (Los Angeles), CA Joe is a lean, wiry catcher that will graduate in 2017 with a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed is well above average as indicated by his 7.09 60 time. At the plate is where he shows best through a squared/athletic setup. Hands are quick, generating bat speed and work through a level swing path. He has strength in his swing with good barrel accuracy as he works to keep hands inside the ball, utilizing all fields and displaying gap to gap pop. Behind the plate, pop times shows a range of 2.12-2.24 with accuracy on his throws as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program Receiving/blocking skills show as quality tools as he continues to develop and get more reps. With 2 years to further develop, Joe has potential and will get looks from the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.
