09/04/2020 - HS All-Region Tournament Marcus continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. At the plate, hitting abilities are outstanding with near pro level power potential through an athletic setup. Hands are strong and work through an aggressive swing path. He has strength (89 mph exit velocity) in his swing with gap-to-gap pop. Behind the dish, he presents a soft/sure mitt showing great pocket awareness sticking pitches. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process, but needs to work to get body down sooner. Pop times showed in the 2.26 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program.
