Robert Caleb is a thick, strong 2018 two-way prospect who is currently more advanced as a first baseman. He uses his big frame to generate impressive raw power, consistently hitting the ball hard and driving it deep into the outfield and over the fence. At the plate, he is aggressive in his at bats, looking to ambush the first good pitch he sees. His path is direct to the ball with fast bat speed and he makes square contact to drive the ball. His balance is centered throughout his swing with good weight transfer to generate power with his lower half. On the bump, he works on a downhill plane, creating a tough angle for hitters to make contact. He has a quick arm that shows with a fastball that tops out at 78 with good tail, an 11-5 curveball with tight spin and a deceptive changeup with good movement. At first, he has soft hands to scoop the ball and quick, agile feet to work around the bag to field and receive throws. He centers the ball in his body, fielding with soft hands and has a strong arm to throw around the infield. Robert Caleb is an exciting, young prospect who we are excited to watch progress even more in the future.
