Zachary is a lean catcher who has a promising future on the diamond. Behind the dish, he utilizes his feet well in working in line to his target through a clean transfer / exchange as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Pop times show a range of 2.25-2.46 with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. He displays a soft glove and sticks balls well in the zone. He uses his body through the blocking process, centering balls well out front. At the plate, he continues to shine through a squared setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently through the swing. With 2 years to further develop, Zachary has a lot of potential with time and room to progress his game.
