08/11/2008 - College PREP - San Diego, CA Marcio is a catcher that shows above average tools in all areas. Defensively, Marcio displays a good, low stance with good, firm glove extension as he receives. He has good range laterally on ball in the dirt, but he will improve with some refined technique as he generally falls to his shin guards. His throwing ability is above average as he gets on top of his throws, and he has a solid transfer leading into his throws. His inconsistency to the bag, will improve upon training for better footwork, as he is load and not direction with his feet. At the plate, Marcio has a balanced stance and a good load, even though he wraps his bat behind his helmet. He is strong and whips the barrel through the zone creating plenty of bat speed. His hitting ability will improve upon acquiring patience and working the ball to the opposite field with more consistency. Overall, Marcio shows good tools and has a great catchers body that college coaches like to develop.
