06/03/2018 - College PREP - Folsom (Sacramento), CA Nate is an athletic catcher graduating in 2020. In the field, Nate shows quick feet that allow him to drop to his knees and get to his feet quickly. He shows an athletic fielding position with soft hands that do a great job sticking pitches along with a good downward chest angle when blocking. Nate makes quick exchanges into a short arm action (3/4 arm slot) and shows a quick release that translates well into his above average pop times (1.94-2.15). Nate can improve his throwing accuracy and velocity through a throwing program. At the plate, Nate shows a spray type approach and uses the whole field. He displays a square set up with an on-time stride and a good back-side hand load. Rhythm is smooth as he keeps his balance center and shows a lower half that stays through throughout his swing. He shows fast bat speed through a short, direct swing path and makes square contact with the ball. Nate is a talented player with a lot of upside. With another two years of development, Nate can play at the next level and make an impact.
