He gets good hand separation and delivers the barrel with leverage - resulting in a barrel explosion (87 mph exit velocity) with the ball coming off well of his barrel from both sides of the plate. With flexion and good sway he pockets pitches with a soft/sure mitt. He shows off his athletic abilities through the blocking process as he is a wall behind the plate. Pop times showed in the 1.91 range with accuracy / on line carry (85 mph velocity) on his throws. He will control the running game with his feet / arm.
