06/04/2017 - College PREP - Kennesaw, GA Vinny is a tall, solid catcher who has a promising future on the diamond. At the plate is where he shows best, displaying solid hitting abilities with well above average power potential. Hands are quick (87 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He has strength in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel with power showing best to the pull side. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. Behind the plate, feet are active, working in line to his target through a quick transfer / exchange and gets rid of the baseball quickly. Pop times showed in the 2.18 range with accuracy to 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. Hands are firm as he presents a low target well out front, and tracks balls in. He uses his body well through the blocking process but needs to get lateral movement to improve grade. Vinny has a lot of potential with time and room to progress his game.
