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.

First of all it should be stated that Joel Collins was very ill, we believe a combination of food poisoning and exhaustion. Still Collins distinguished himself in Lincoln with his defensive ability. He had one of the most compact, efficient releases among the outstanding group of catchers at the event and displayed above average accuracy to both second base and third base. Collins pop times were in the 1.95 to 1.98 range and most of them were tag throws. When completely healthy, we’d expect those times to drop even further. Collins has a fundamentally sound swing and consistently centered the bat head on the ball during BP and in games. He hit line drive after line drive and there's definitely some power potential there. Very good looking DI or pro prospect who knows how to play the game. Big winner! Joel is a good student.
