Clark is a polished catcher with possibly the best offensive/defensive package in the Nation and he shows it everywhere he goes. He pops routinely under 2, on the bag and his catch and throw skills are presently amongst Major League average catchers. His best tool yet may be his bat. He can flat out hit with wood and has average to better MLB power already. In fact, at 5 foot 10 and 180 pounds Clark has more power for his size than possibly anyone in the Nation. And he can center the ball with wood and abuses the sweet spot on his barrel. He has championship caliber makeup. He is one of the premier catchers in the Prep Class.

Clark was our choice as the top position prospect at the Perfect Game National. That he was the only pure position player even in the top 10 didn’t lessen the quality skills and tools that he showed over three days. Clark is part of the new breed of catchers who are shorter and quicker than their peers of a decade ago. That’s not to say that at 5-10, 180 lbs. that Clark isn’t strong, he shows unusual power with the wood. Usually it’s defense first with a catcher but Clark has a chance to make an impact with his bat. He has very good bat speed with wood, a good trigger and rhythm that gets him into his swing and makes consistent hard contact. There’s a little bit of Craig Biggio in his body type and swing. Behind the plate Clark has good compact actions and quickness. He was steady between 1.92 and 1.95 on his pop times and showed slightly above average pure arm strength. Probably the aspect of his defense we liked the most was his intensity and leadership skills. Clark approached every pitch like it was a potential turning point in a game, blocking balls in both directions, making consistent, accurate throws and encouraging his teammates. You don’t always see that in a showcase environment when players don’t know each other and the score doesn’t matter. It looks to be the only way Clark knows how to play. Preston plays for keeps and is going to create great interest with the very top college programs and MLB scouts. He's also a good student.

Very good catcher and the ball jumps off his bat.
