Joel Thompson is a 2017 C/ with a 6-3 225 lb. frame from Council Bluffs, IA who attends Lewis Central. Large frame with broad shoulders and present strength throughout. Ran a 7.34 sixty-yard dash. Primary catcher with a slightly taller, open stance while setting up to receive the baseball. Gains ground towards the bag with fundamental footwork. Quick, clean exchanges while working through transition and released from a compact three-quarters arm slot. Throws produced accurate carry with slight carry to the bag. Topped at 82 miles per hour with a best workout pop time of 1.91. Right handed hitter with an upright, slightly open stance and simple leg lift trigger. Shifts into contact well with linear lower half actions. Looks to attack the baseball out front on a direct path with a lifted plane through extension. Stays balanced throughout with the barrel control to work the ball to all fields. Can turn the barrel producing solid bat speed with the ability to drive the ball through the pull side gap.
