PG Grade: 9.5
Collins is an "04" catcher from Ontario who is among the best catching prospects in the "04" class. At 6'1/195 he is strong but not bulky in the least. He has easy MLB arm strength, throwing 84 mph to 2B inWareham and on the money! His pop times were consistently 1.9 without cheating. He is very good defensively receiving and moving behind the plate. He seems to have an advanced knowledge of the game. He is equally impressive at the plate. He has a pretty easy line drive swing and he can power pitch after pitch for line drives in BP. A new and welcome ingredient was the power he displayed in Wareham. Showing he's not just another good warning track power guy, he pulled a long "no doubt" home run in the game. This kid is really good and needs to be seen a lot to fully appreciate what he is capable of. Not flashy, just good! He has played for Canada's National Team. Joel is a good student.
