10/27/2013 - College PREP - Corpus Christi, TX Samuel is a skilled catcher who has a big build (5'7"/210 lbs). Behind the plate, he sits in well and presents a low target. He receives with a soft mitt and frames well. He moves well for a big guy and gets around the ball in the dirt, centering it off of his chest and deadening it in front. Pop times are as low as 2.15 from a quick/clean exchange. Offensively, Chapa has an aggressive approach going to the plate to hit. He gets back into a loaded position and delivers the barrel on a level path. He shows some pull-side pop and hits the ball on a line. More lower 1/2 drive will help to increase power at the plate. As only a sophomore, Samuel has a solid skill-set and will only continue to get better.
