Josh is a very smart, athletic young man with fast wheels.  Josh is primarily a catcher but because f his athleticism, plays everywhere else affectively.  Behind the plate, he is in command, he communicates well and handles pitchers very well.  He has strong hands and great mechanics behind the plate with an accurate arm and a quick release.  He is very comfortable on the dirt and gives his team a great options at 3B and 2B.  Josh is also, very comfortable in the OF.  He can play all 3 spots and tracks the ball very well.  Josh also pitches and is very affective.  He throws 3 pitches for strikes and can outsmart solid hitters. At the plate, Josh is very aggressive and is never overmatched.  He has sneaky pop and will grow into a major hitter. Josh will play at the next level and will outwork others to get on the field.
