Scouting Report: Right-handed hitter with strong, physical frame. Listed at 6-foot-3, 230 pounds with minimal remaining physical projection. Power is best tool, will show impressive over the fence power in workouts and batting practice. Hit tool could develop into average eventually. Defense is a work in progress and arm strength is reportedly below-average. Has also played first base at Kentucky. Was a semi-finalist for the 2018 Dick Howser Trophy awarded to the top player in collegiate baseball. Potential offensive minded catcher. Future upside depends on how defense develops and how much he hits which allows him to tap into his raw power.

Note: This page will be updated with a complete scouting report after the scouting team has seen the player in person.
