12/27/2017 - Under Armour Baseball Factory Recruiting Classic (Ages 14-18) Ross is a lean, athletic catcher who has a promising future on the diamond. Behind the plate, feet are aggressive and active as he works in line to his target, through a clean transfer / exchange. Pop times show in the 2.15 range with accuracy 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 baseball quicker. Glove action is soft and he sticks in the zone but needs to present his target earlier. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process but will benefit by getting down sooner. At the plate he shows an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive approach. He makes consistent contact with power showing best to the pull side. Power will continue to improve as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. Mental makeup is outstanding as he has a positive attitude, is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be. With 3 years to further develop, Ross has potential with time and room to progress his game.
