Ratcliff is a strong catcher who opened our eyes showing good raw power with the wood. Behind the plate he looked fundamentally sound in nearly every area. He had a 2.09 pop time with 78 mph velocity on his throw to second and he displayed solid blocking ability. He has a good catchers build at 5 foot 11 and 210 pounds with life in his legs and soft hands. His strong arm might be even quicker to second with a shorter arm action. With the bat he punished the ball. He never got the chance to tag a live pitch cleanly but showed some good power in batting practice and it can not be ignored. He is a powerful hitting catcher with a nice swing ! Chris is a top student.
