01/08/2021 - 2021 Baseball Factory Pre-Season Prospects Tournament (HS) Ricardo is an athletic catcher who has a promising future on the diamond. Behind the plate he shows a squared setup and tracks the ball well with soft glove. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process, centering balls well out front. Pop times showed a range of 2.10-2.20 with accuracy / carry on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and works to get rid of the ball quicker. At the plate, he shows an athletic, open setup. Hands are quick (80 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive approach. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach, flashing gap to gap pop. Lower half works well through the swing and shows a feel for the barrel. Ricardo has potential with time and room to progress his game.
