Christian Griffiths is a 2008 C/OF with a 6'2'', 170 lb. frame from Apple Valley CA, who attends Granite Hills HS. Selected as a Top Prospect for this event, Griffiths has a lot to offer, for both major D1 programs and as a professional prospect. He has a lean body with wiry strength and good agility. Griffiths shows ability as both a catcher and as a corner outfielder and his bat looks like an asset at either position, though it stands out more as a catcher. He swings the bat well from both sides, with bat speed and a quiet approach on both sides. His power potential looks stronger as a right-handed hitter. From the left side he showed a line drive, whole-field stroke and line drive/gap power. He has good bat control and should be able to hit for average and some power. Griffiths is still developing feel as a catcher, but he possesses all he will need to be a plus defensive catcher. He is athletic and agile, with a plus arm and quick feet. His transfer is very good as well. Griffiths threw a 1.93 in game situations, so his tools transfer to game action, rare for high school catchers. His receiving skills are still developing, as are his blocking skills. It is more of a technique issue rather than ability. When in right field Griffiths moved like he was very comfortable there, approaching the ball easily and getting of big (91 mph), low tracking throws on line to the bag. He would rack up the assists as an outfielder. Griffiths is an exceptional student and very talented player. He likely will be able to pick and choose where he wants to go to college and will also draw draft interest in his senior year.
