Hefler is a good looking big catcher. At 6'3/192 he is proportioned very well with room for added strength. He runs very well for a catcher showing athletic ability. His arm plays, but he needs work on footwork and technique behind the plate. Casey needs to find the best hitting instructor possible. He has a lot of bad habits in his approach and swing mechanics. This is different than a lack of ability. He may very well get by on his present day mechanics at the high school level, but as the pitching becomes much better the problems become more pronounced. Casey is a good athlete with an outstanding athletic body. He needs to take full advantage of that. He's a good student as well.

Hefler is an athletic catcher who showed his foot-speed by running a laser-timed 6.78 in the 60 yard dash. He also popped a best of 1.96 to 2B by utilizing quick feet and a quick short arm stroke. His arm strength lacked a bit by topping out at 71 mph but he got the ball there and was around the front of the bag. He has a good build and can swing the bat. He ripped the ball hard on several occasions and made contact a lot. He played outfield also but struggled defensively with the position. Catching may also be a stretch for him at the next level because of the difficulty he showed receiving the ball but he is a ball-player and his bat and athleticism will find him a spot in the line-up. Good student.
