10/30/2016 - College PREP - Corpus Christi, TX Nathan is a big, broad 2017 catching prospect. He shows serious power at the plate as the ball jumps off his bat (94mph exit velo) and shows good carry to the deepest parts of the field. Behind the plate, he shows quiet actions and fluid footwork that help him both to block and throw, as he gains ground to his target. He takes good lateral angles, blocking well to both sides on balls in the dirt. Working on getting down to block every time instead of picking the ball is the final step to becoming a complete catcher. At the dish, he is smooth to load and stride, with an on time launch of his explosive bat through the zone. He makes hard, square contact with the ball with good feel for the barrel and has impressive power to all fields. Nathan is a prospect we definitely want to keep an eye on as he enters his senior season.
