Kelly Waddell is a 6-1, 185 lb junior catcher from Iowa. He threw 68 mph during catching drills with a best pop time of 2.14. Waddell has a side arm release on his throws during warm ups trying to hurry the ball and made better, stronger throws during the games when he was forced to shorten his arm stroke and throw from a higher release point. He handles himself well behind the plate and showed lateral agility and soft hands. Offensively, Waddell hits from a very wide closed stance with no load or stride. He has solid core strength and generates some bat speed with some lift in his swing. He got under a few balls and lofted them pretty good. Some adjustments to get his body behind the ball better and get some rhythm in his swing could really unleash some power potential. He's young and should keep improving. Waddell is a good student off the field.
