Brian Cooper is a 5'8", 180 lb. catcher from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Brian's pop times ranged from 2.02-2.07 with a top velocity of a good 77 mph from behind the plate. Cooper showed extremely consistent mechanics and accuracy to go along with his solid arm strength. Brian has college level catching skills with very clean transfers and solid footwork. Cooper is a right handed hitter with a wide stance and no stride approach, and has a short, quick bat path with good hand strength. Brian has a line drive swing plane, but tends to dive into the ball and cut off his extension. He has the physical tools to improve his hitting in the future, and is already an advanced defensive catcher. Brian is a good student.

Brian Cooper is a right handed hitting 2005 catcher from Philadelphia who appears taller than his listed 5'8" height. He’s a patient hitter with a pro style set up at the plate and some good bat speed with wood. Cooper has a good line drive swing plane and worked the ball up the middle and to the opposite field well. He has the bat speed and strength to turn on more balls. Cooper’s defensive tools are very playable behind the plate and he also showed the ability to play third base as well. It looks like his hands are his best defensive tool.

Brian is a stocky, athletic and strong 05 Catcher from Philadelphia, PA. He uses decent foot work and actions to throw 2.09 (72mph) to second. Brian's transfers are quick but he stands up too quickly in the process. If he were to remain lower, he could be a sub 2.0 thrower easily. At the plate Brian uses a quiet approach with a wide base, with very little hand and body load. His swing path is short and quick to the ball with a good line drive approach to all fields. Brian has very strong hands with well above average bat spped. Brian will hit for power down the road if he develops a better body and hand load. He is already a college level hitter, we feel there is a lot of power potential in his swing.
