2006 National Showcase   Jun 16, 2006
PG Grade: 9
Micah Gibbs is a 2007 switch-hitting catcher from Leander HS, residing in Leander, TX. Gibbs has a thick, powerful lower body and a strong, mature 5'11" 205 lb. frame. He has bigger proportions than what scouts are usually looking for, but he is a surprisingly good athlete with some life in his body. His all-around game as a catching prospect was among the best in the showcase and he was ranked #85 among PG National Top 100 position players. At the plate Gibbs showed well from both sides of the plate. He make a lot of good barrel contact from both sides. From the right side Gibbs has a very easy swing and easy power. He stayed inside the ball and showed the ability to hit from gap to gap. He keeps it pretty simple and allows his natural abilities to come out without forcing it. From the left side he hit from a more open stance and seemed to be a bit more aggressive, particularly with the move his body made to the ball as it entered the zone. He has some power to the pull side from the left side. Behind the plate Gibbs showed himself to be a quality receiver. He caught some very good arms quite well. His strong arm tracks well to the bag at 2nd base and he showed above average pop times. Though he is a bigger bodied catcher, his feet and body work with some life and he is going to throw out his fair share of runners. Gibbs ran 4.50 home/1st with a 7.59 60 yard time. He is a D1 catching prospect and as a switch-hitting catcher with a good arm, he has a chance to develop into a quality professional prospect. His build will always be called into question so he will have to fight to overcome that. His ability should speak for itself.
