10/29/2017 - College PREP - Corpus Christi, TX Roberto is a broad, compact catching prospect who uses his frame well both at the plate and behind it. He is a wall behind the dish, keeping everything in front and giving his pitcher the confidence to throw balls in the dirt. His actions are quick as a backstop as he moves well laterally and gets down to block and recover quickly. He receives well, working around the ball and catching with a stiff wrist to stick pitches in the zone. At the plate, he shows good timing and balance in his swing and is able to cover the zone with a powerful bat angle. His lower half works well to generate bat speed and he works on a direct path to the ball to make consistent, square contact. Staying through the ball and extending on contact will lead to more hard hit balls and extra base hits. Roberto is an intriguing prospect who we expect to have a big senior season.
