Banks is a 6-0, 185 junior catcher from Texas with a good catcher's body that should get stronger. He ran the 60 in 7.49 and threw 72 mph during drills with a best pop time of 2.09. Banks had very good quickness behind the plate during the games and shifted quickly to balls in the dirt. He's a high energy young catcher who pitchers should enjoy throwing to. At the plate, Banks hits out of a very unnatural looking open crouched stance with a very early and exaggerated hand trigger. It looks like different pieces from a couple of different hitting approaches that don't fit together well at all and leave Banks off balance and unable to use his natural strength and athletic ability to hit. The ball came off Banks' bat well on contact and he has the physical potential to be a good hitter if he can significantly simplify his approach. His defensive skills will make him a valuable performer in the short term. Good follow who can excel defensively at a premium position. Banks is also a good student.
