06/17/2012 - College PREP - Hoover (Birmingham), AL Lance is a tall catcher that will graduate in 2013. Feet are active working in line to his target. Throws flash carry through a low arm slot but needs to improve accuracy and build more arm strength to improve arm grade. Pop times show a range of 2.20-2.39 as he needs to speed up his transfer / exchange and work to get rid of the ball quicker to lower pop times. He shows a solid setup and is quiet through the receiving process, allowing his hands to work well but needs further development with his blocking skills to improve foot next level. At the plate, Daniel shows a balanced approach with rhythm. He makes consistent contact through a level swing path, mainly to the pull side. To continue to improve hitting grades, he needs to 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 through the swing. Lance has abilities with a lot of room to improve.
