PG Grade: 8.5
C Derrick Brandt: Brandt is a 22 year old college catcher from Grandview College. He has good size at 6-3, 210 and enough athletic ability to run the 60 in 7.05. Brandt showed us a controlled, simple release on his throws from behind the plate and good pop times in the 1.87 to 2.00 range. Despite his size, Brandt has a short, line drive type of swing that, like his throwing release, is simple and repeatable. He followed up a solid batting practice with some good game at bats, including a solid line drive hit off an 87 mph fastball.
