06/19/2019 - College PREP - Charleston, WV Joel is a solid backstop who also will make an impact with the bat. Behind the dish, he presents a soft/sure mitt showing great pocket awareness sticking pitches. Quick lateral movements allow him to center/deaden pitches in the dirt off of a soft chest. Pop times show in the 2.27 with accuracy and carry on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Offensively, he continues to shine with outstanding hitting abilities with tremendous power potential. He has athletic/smooth actions with fluid rhythm to load. He gets good hand separation and delivers the barrel with leverage, resulting in a barrel explosion (88 mph exit velocity) with the ball screaming off of his barrel. With 2 years to further develop, Joel has a big upside and will get looks from the top collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.
