07/15/2011 - Team One South 2011 Payne showed similar abilities as we had previously seen in Dayton, MD and only showed as a catcher at the event. He shows a clean transfer / exchange and gets rid of the baseball quickly with carry and accuracy on his throws. Setup is solid as he sits low and has improved receiving skills as he works his soft hands around the ball. Blocking skills are a plus and will play at the next level. Offensively, power grades have improved to outstanding as he shows a plus feel for the barrel with bat speed as the baseball explodes off his bat. He uses all fields with plus pop to all fields and looks to hit fastballs early in the count.
