12/27/2009 - Christmas Camp and Tournament #2 Steve is a strong, quick Catcher who displayed sound baseball skills during his time in Pirate City. He also cut down his 60 time to 6.96. He runs well for a Catcher, has soft hands, and receives the ball well. Steve is a good blocker who shifts well in and out. His arm is accurate to his target, and with more added strength, pop times could be lowered. Offensively, Steve has a good balance and bat speed in his short, compact stroke. He again showed the ability to square the ball up on the barrel and has gap and pull side pop. With continued work on the outer 1/3 of the plate, and more strike zone recognition, Steve has the ability to further improve his offensive numbers.
