Tasman is a 2005 C from Huntington, NY with a big, mature 6'2"/190 pound body. He's got good speed as he ran a 6.89 60 in workouts. He's a great athlete with impressive feet that translates into a 1.97 pop time topping out at 75 mph from behind the plate. His arm angle is at a low 3/4 but he has a very smooth transfer and a quick release. He has above average blocking skills and he receives the ball well. Offensively, he hits from a wide stance with quick hands that produces above average bat speed. He makes consistent solid contact and shows the potential for big time power. He has a great body, and he is an excellent athlete. Jonathan is a very good student.

Jonathan Tasman is a 6'2", 190 lb. catcher/outfielder from Huntington, New York, with very good foot speed and some raw bat speed. Jon showed above average arm strength behind the plate with 1.96-2.12 pop times and a top velocity of a good 78 mph. Jon has a good arm, but could improve it even more with some mechanical adjustments. In the outfield he showed 80 mph velocity with average actions. Jon is a right handed hitter with a wide base stance and good bat speed. He took a short, quick path to the ball in batting practice and showed power to all fields. Against live pitching, Jon tends to change his swing mechanics and loses some of the balance and swing plane he shows in batting practice. Overall, Jon is a very good athlete who is raw in his baseball skills, but has a very high ceiling. He is an excellent student.

Jonathan Tasman is a 2005, 6'2" athletic catcher from Huntington, NY, with some very good pro level tools. His skills are raw and it’s going to take some patience to develop them to perform in games at the upper levels, but he has a high physical ceiling. Tasman takes an excellent batting practice. He has a level swing that generates well above average bat speed and the ball really jumps to right centerfield. Tasman swings the bat hard, and with better extension out front could really lose balls. Tasman’s game approach is much rougher. He still swings hard, but his balance isn't quite as good and his swing plane is inconsistent and off the ball. Defensively, Tasman has 6.9 speed and shows good arm strength that could be solid MLB average. We’ve seen him both catching and in the outfield and are not sure where he might fit best in the future, but he has some serious ability. Jonathan is an excellent student as well.
