07/01/2013 - College PREP - Erie, PA Nate is a power hitting catcher who has a strong lower 1/2. Offensively, he gets into a solid loaded position and drives his backside lower 1/2 to help generate power off of the bat. He gets good torque and bat whip, getting the barrel to and through the zone quickly. He will be a run producer in the middle of a line-up with his ability to drive balls to all fields. Behind the plate, this backstop sits in well and sticks the ball when receiving. He has a clean exchange and gains ground working in-line toward 2nd with pop times as low as 2.09. Quickening his transfer/exchange will help to lower pop times. As a rising senior, Nate should get some looks to advance his game to the next level thanks to his abilities on the diamond.
