11/12/2023 - National Showcase - Marlborough (Boston), MA Robert is a tall (6ft 1/185) and talented catcher in the 2024 class. Behind the plate, he shows excellent feet and displays a solid target. Stays quiet and maintains his eyes behind the ball. His exchanges are quick and he gains a short and fast release from an over-the-top slot. Registered a 2.10 pop and was on the bag. Creates a great spine angle on his blocks and covers the 5-hole well. At the plate, he has an athletic base with an open stance. Generates a solid hand load and his timing is smooth. His swing is repeatable. Hits off a firm front side and his barrel is on-plane. Can drive the ball to the gaps and working on his extension will increase his back spin rate for flush contact. Overall, Robert is a solid back stop and can help the right program next fall.
