COACHES COMMENTS:

Barrett is an extremely physical and projectable catcher and RHP who has the ability to play corner IF and/or OF. Posing in his 6’2” 175lb frame, Barrett has a knack for finding barrels and driving baseballs. He is one of those guys that never takes a pitch off at the plate, constantly ready to hit and staying very aggressive on both his swings, but in his takes as well. With all of the leverage in his body, there is no telling just how much power Barrett has available and it will be intriguing watching him hit in the coming years. Defensively, Barrett has strong hands and sticks baseballs well when he puts on the catcher’s gear. He has an electric arm action and the ball jumps out of his hand on each and every throw down. Barrett’s footwork and cleanliness will continue to improve and take his ability as a catcher to another level as he grows into and learns his body. On the mound, Barrett’s fastball gets on hitter’s quick because of his arm whip and his ability to reach out. He also commands a sharp breaking ball with legitimate bite on it. Although catching might be his ticket, Barrett is continuing to work on both corner IF and corner OF positions as he knows that his strong bat will keep him in the lineup as long as he gives coaches options on defense. It will be exciting to watch Barrett interact with some top programs at the next level as he continues to work hard and mature over the next couple of years.
