A significant thing that is not stressed in these other drills is the throwing mechanics.

A catcher should always bring their hand up to their ear and throw (of course with a snap). When a catcher throws their glove (which should be extended towards their target) should cross their chest when they throw. To gain speed on the throw down to second, a catcher has to pop-up after they have caught the ball. When they pop-up their feet should be at a 90 degree angle to what they were at before.

A good drill to practice the popping up on steals is drawing a cross. Crouching down on one of the lines a catcher should be able to pop-up and land on the other line that crosses it.
*good practice for throwing correctly is holding onto your ear as you pop-up each time*
