Belk is a Junior Catcher who, at 5 foot 10 and 155 showed a good arm defensively and a solid bat offensively. He ran a 7.35 in the 60 and moves well behind the dish. We imagine he could also play another position but his 1.99 pop time coupled with his quick feet make him a College prospect at the catcher position. He took the mound and showed 78 mph velocity with a 64 mph curve and 70 mph change-up. It was obvious that he knew what he was doing on the hill but his top talent lies in the field and with the bat. We liked his swing. He presents a level swing plane and drove the middle in BP and in games. It looks like he understands a lot about the game.

Belk is a Junior catcher who also showed pitching ability that will help win at his varsity level. He does not have the body size to give him natural power but at 5 foot 10 and 155 pounds he showed good strength and a good swing. He shows catching ability and hitting ability that projects well at his primary position behind the plate. His body is lean and athletic in good proportion. He showed good life in his legs and his actions are all coordinated with both throwing and hitting. His defensive skill showed soft receiving hands and a low receiving position giving a good target. He did have a natural tendency to pull his right hand out from behind his back exposing it to a foul tip before it reached his mitt but the rest of his receiving duties looked easy for him. He was quick from behind the plate on his throws, showed 72-74 mph velocity on his pop times and will only get better as he gets stronger. On the mound he threw a fastball, curveball and change-up. For a catcher, he made the arm action adjustment well, showing a longer arm from high cock position to his finish. It is a short and quick arm action but easy enough to show that he is very much in control of his body and is not spending any effort that will disrupt the consistent release point he showed. The fastball was clocked between 79-83 mph and his change-up sat between 68-70 mph. Both pitches showed location and will get outs if he can keep command of them. His curve had 64 mph velocity and showed the makings of a good spin. He is a junior that we expect will continue to get better this spring.
