05/27/2012 - College PREP - Lebanon (Nashville), TN Johnthan is a lanky, athletic catcher that will graduate in 2015. Feet are quick / active and work in line to his target through a clean transfer / exchange. He gets rid of the baseball quickly with accuracy on his throws. Pop times show a range of 2.04-2.09 and will continue to drop as more arm strength is developed. Receiving / blocking skills show as quality tools that will play well at the next level as he continues to improve. At the plate, Dukes shows a squared / balanced approach as he sits in well. He is aggressive with his hands, making consistent contact to the pull side. For hitting grades to continue to improve, he needs to level out swing path and work to keep hands inside the ball to utilize all fields. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more efficiently through the swing. With 3 years to further develop, Johnthan has a lot of potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches as he continues to improve.
