LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2006 National Showcase  
Joel Carranza is a 2007 rigth hand hitting catcher from McArthur HS, residing in Pembroke Pines, FL. Carranza has a strong, comact, somewhat stocky build on his 6'0" 187 lb. frame. He is a catcher that brings a good bat to the position, which will always help a catcher's rating. He was ranked #74 among PG National Top 100 position players and if he keeps on developing the bat, he will be a prospect to follow this spring. Carranza is an aggressive hitter. He starts open but closes up as he gets ready to attack at the plate. His swing arc is a bit sweeping but he gets good acceleration through contact, resulting in good present day power. Carranza is a timing type hitter whose swing can appear long if he is late. When on time his barrel is long in the zone and also results in the ability for him to drive the ball hard to the opposite field. Behind the plate he posted good pop times in the workout and showed a 2.09 in one game. His raw arm strength is approaching average but it plays above that with pretty good feet and a quick exchange. He is an adequate defender who will throw out some runners and drive in some runs. Carranza ran 4.62 home/1st with a 7.52 60. He is a D1 prospect and likely will have to continue to prove his bat at that level while also continuing to develop his defensive skills before getting a professional opportunity.
