Mason is a catching prospect who will graduate in 2024. During this event, Mason would show great defensive work behind the plate posting a well above average rating in his receiving and blocking. We were excited to see his absolute hose on display, throwing a raw velo of 85mph. With his quick exchange, Mason posted a 2.05 pop time. This was one of the best times recorded at this event. Not only did he impress behind the dish, but Mason also showed his ability to swing the bat. His smooth rhythm, fast bat speed, and centered approach helped Mason provide a consistent approach at the plate. Working on staying in his legs as he swings will help his power numbers to grow. Overall, Mason is a solid prospect who has the potential to further develop his skills on the field.

Mason is a young, athletic, 2-way player who catches and plays OF. Behind the plate, Mason has quick feet, he sits in low, and he covers ground well. He is quick to block, receives softly, and his exchange is clean with a strong/accurate arm to 2nd base. In the OF, Mason is aggressive to the ball, he covers ground, and fields squarely. He reads the ball well off the bat, plays through, and throws with accuracy to his cut off man. Offensively, Mason has an open stance, a short stride, and he swings in good rhythm. He has fast bat speed, he gets good separation, and he hits with strength to the pull side. Solid overall skills can get even better with work on the following.
1. Stay relaxed
2. Body control
1. 2 hands
2. Catch at highest point
