09/27/2014 - 2014 Under Armour Showcase: Futures West Nolan has many of the attributes that coaches and scouts look for in a catcher. He is a nice mix of athleticism on a strong, durable build. As a defender he receives well with strong but soft hands and has good flexibility in his lower half. His throws are accurate and get down to 2B in the low 2.0 range thanks to a quick, efficient release. As his raw arm strength improves those times will continue to get lower. At the plate, Nolan uses the whole field well with a coordinated move through contact into a full finish. He can drive balls to either gap and hit a deep 2B during game action, showing some of his pop. He has a knack for finding the barrel both in a workout setting and against quality pitching. On top of the physical tools, Nolan is the type of vocal leader you like to see in your catcher, giving him a well-rounded game both in the present and future.
