Cottam arrived at Kentucky as a glove-first catcher. His bat has exceeded expectations, but his defense has regressed. He's split time with Troy Squires behind the plate while playing first base with Squires and Cottam each playing first base half the time. Cottam is a below-average defender with a below-average arm (he threw out 25 percent of base stealers), but his plus power is legitimate. He hit .346/.435/.650 this season for the Wildcats and scouts have come around to his chances to both be an average hitter with potentially above-average power.
