David Clawson
Name: David Joseph Clawson
Born: May 20, 1997 in Mission Viejo, CA
College: Brigham Young
High School: Dana Hills HS, Dana Point, Calif.
Ht.: 6'1" / Wt.: 180 lbs
Bats: L / Throws: R
Drafted in the 37th round (1111th overall) by the Los Angeles Angels in 2018 (signed for $10,000)
Clawson has played in front of scouts quite a bit over the last few years. He started his prep career at Mater Dei, where he was a teammate with prospects Jeremy Martinez, Ryan McMahon and Josh Stephen. Clawson then transferred to Dana Hills High for his junior year, where he played alongside 2015 draft picks Lucas Williams (Phillies, 3rd round) and Marrick Crouse (Blue Jays, 11th round). He's a fairly polished catcher defensively who profiles well with a lefthanded bat and catch-and-throw skills. A Brigham Young signee, Clawson has solid size at 6-foot-1, 185 pounds, and he's shown a solid-average arm with a fairly quick release. He may have enough present strength to handle the grind of catching, but scouts are mixed on Clawson's bat, which at present lacks impact, as his swing can get long. He's old for the class and would be draft-eligible as a sophomore if he winds up in college.
