02/18/2013 - College PREP - Warwick, RI Nolan is solid defensive catcher who has a tall and lanky build. Behind the plate, he sits in low, has quiet/simple actions, and has soft hands. When blocking, he move well laterally to get around the ball in the dirt and center it off of his chest. Pop times are as low as 2.09 as he gets rid of the ball through a quick/clean exchange. Continuing to increase his arm strength will help to lower his pop times. As a hitter, Cooney takes a short/quick hack while delivering the barrel directly toward the ball. He tracks the ball into the zone and swings on a level path. Taking the outside pitch the other way and using more of his lower 1/2 will help his hitting numbers to climb. Nolan has skills as still has a few years to continue to develop his game.
