08/05/2013 - College PREP - Bear (Wilmington), DE Josh is a (6'0/200 lbs) left-handed hitting catcher. Offensively, Josh has an open stance that allows him to track the ball well. Josh has good rhythm and timing and should continue working on loading hands straight back prior to the pitch which will allow a consistent swing path for gap power to all fields. Behind the plate, this backstop sits in well and sticks the ball when receiving. Josh has a high 3/4 slot with loose arm action, a quiet clean exchange and gains ground working in-line toward 2B. Quickening his footwork into transfer will lower pop times. With balls in the dirt, Josh blocks every ball by keeping it in front to hold runners from advancing. Josh should stay lower on block/ recovery plays in order to be quicker utilizing his strong lower half for accurate throws to target. Josh is a player with above average focus behind the plate that can make any pitching staff better throughout the season.
