09/22/2013 - College PREP - New Orleans, LA Nick is a big, solid catcher that will graduate in 2014. Feet are active as he works in line through a clean transfer / exchange as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Pop times show a range of 2.20-2.30 with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Receiving / blocking skills are quality tools that will play well at the next level. At the plate, Franzone shows an athletic setup. He has strength in his swing with the baseball jumping off the bat when centered. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed with late explosion. Power numbers will continue to improve as he improves barrel accuracy and learns to use his lower half more. Nick has a lot of potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches as he continues to improve.
