Jared Avchen is a 2006 catcher/third baseman from Palm Bay, FL with a thick strong build at 6-1, 200 lbs. He ran the 60 in 7.44 and showed excellent arm strength in drills at 80 mph. Avchen had a best pop time of 1.89 but doesn't rush his throws to second and makes strong, accurate throws. He showed very good game quickness behind the plate and can really jump on balls out in front of the plate. He's a first rate defensive catcher overall. Offensively, Avchen has a short, quick stroke and gets some extension out front that gives him some lift in his swing. It's a low maintanence swing that should result in consistent contact against all types of pitching if Avchen can stay short. Avchen showed us his power potential by hitting a game home run at Turner Field and this is an area of his game that could really develop as he gets more and more experience. Avchen is one of the more solid, well rounded catching prospects in the country. He is a very good student who has signed with Alabama.
