01/19/2024 - 2024 Baseball Factory Rookie Pre-Season All-America Tournament John continues to show as a prospect at the Preseason Rookie All American showcase. Behind the dish, he presents a soft/sure mitt showing great pocket awareness sticking pitches. He uses his body through the blocking process, centering balls well out front. Pop times showed in 2.44 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. He plays hard and takes command behind the dish. At the plate, he shows an open setup. Hands are quick (84 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He has strength in his swing and makes consistent hard contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently.
