Waller is a tough catcher with a solid build and an attitude that will separate him from others with comparable tools. He showed a good competitive drive to go along with some outstanding ability in Waco. He popped a 1.96 with 78 mph velocity. He has a durable body and showed good focus throughout the weekend long competition. At 6 foot 1 and 220 pounds he has a big strong frame and he utilizes the strong legs as a receiver and a hitter. He showed some nice power with wood and can flat out hit live pitching. He played extra innings for an injured catcher one day and battled on the mound at the end of the showcase for an injured pitcher showing a good high level of ability in scorching 100 degree heat. He still managed to pitch between 81-84 mph and showed a good 70 mph breaking ball. He must have sweat a gallon of water and seemed to get better as he went along. He wouldn't let anything by him as a catcher and one shot that he hit onto the left gap was a rocket off a lively 87 mph fastball. He is a top catcher who could easily become a very nice draft pick by next June. He can play for any college in America. Cody is also a top level student. !

Waller is a hard-nosed player that can do a lot for a team. He lists catching as his primary position and we wouldn't put him anywhere else either. He is a good receiver who showed soft hands, good catch and throw ability, leadership behind the dish and tools! He had pop times routinely in the low 1.9's and got his fastest time of 1.89 on the bag. He has a good, strong body with compact actions and a good short to the ball swing with some power. He drove the ball about 350 feet each time it touched his bat in BP, and it came off fast. He did everything well and was without question one of the top catchers in the showcase. He needs to be followed by Pro Scouts and College Coaches closely. He hit good pitching and played for keeps all weekend ! And he threw 85mph off the mound too. He even runs well for a big guy. Excellent student.
