09/20/2015 - College PREP - Detroit, MI Pierson is a skilled R/R backstop (6'0"/155). Behind the dish, he sits in athletically while presenting a low target. Quick footwork allows him to move well laterally and body up pitches in the dirt. Exchange is quick/clean as he gains ground toward 2B putting strong/accurate throws on the bag (pop times of 1.94). As a hitter - Hoy shows a balanced setup as he waits for his pitch. Swing is quick as he works to engage his lower 1/2 helping to generate torque resulting in pop off of his barrel. Developing 'smoother' rhythm to load will help to improve barrel consistency while allowing him to hit the ball where it's pitched to utilize the entire field. Hoy is a very talented catcher who has a ton of upside and who will make things happen on the diamond.
