12/12/2021 - All-In Membership - Lynwood (Chicago), IL Jude is an athletic catcher who is a prospect on the diamond. 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 a soft chest. Receiving / blocking tools show as quality tools that will play well at the next level. Pop times shows in the 2.13 range with accuracy / carry (80 mph velocity) 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 solid hitting /power potential through an athletic setup. 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 (82 mph exit velocity) with gap to gap pop. With 2 years to further develop, Jude has the makings of a special type player and will get looks from the top collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.
