LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2006 Southeast Top Prospect Showcase  
Jason Butts is a 2007 C with a 6'1'', 185 lb. frame from Woodstock GA, who attends Kell HS. He has a live athletic body with good potential to add strength in the future. Butts wasn't able to participate in the drills portion of the showcase and only played in the games, but we've seen him play multiple times per year for the last three years and have a good handle on his skills and tools. He is one of the better defensive catcher's in the 2007 class. Butts has easy, quick actions behind the plate and receives top level pitches effortlessly. He has plus arm strength and a quick release; we had him on a game throw at 1.95 with the throw right on the bag. Offensively, Butts has a balanced approach and stays within himself very well with the bat. He has a smooth line drive swing plane and hits the ball to all fields. He has developing gap to gap power that will continue to improve as he gets stronger and more mature physically. Butts is a good student.
