  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Athletic build for a catcher. Still has projection remaining in frame.

Hit: Left-handed bat. Strong wrists and hands. Primarily a pull hitter. Swing lacks loft, line drive stroke. Potential average hit tool.

Power: Gap power at present. Power has not progressed much early in his career.

Run: Fringe-average speed. Will not be a stolen base threat.

Field:  Doesn’t project as a standout defender, but should be able to stick at catcher long term. Receives the ball well and has good makeup.

Arm: Potential plus arm behind the plate.
  Career Notes: Signed for a small bonus in July 2017. Has moved up the ladder one level per year. Participated in the 2018 Fall Instructional League.

Summation: Needs a lot of development and will likely move slowly through the system. Has the tools to develop into a major league catcher, but is years away.

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