  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Large, sturdy build. Strong. Right build for a backstop.

Hit: Bat-first profile. Solid motions in the box. All-field approach. Good feel for the strike zone for his age. Uses the whole field.

Power: Above-average to better power potential. Sneaky pull-side power

Run: Below-average, not a part of his game.

Field: Average hands. Still raw but organization expects him to stay behind the plate. May get time at first base.

Arm: Reports range from average to strong.
  Career Notes: Trained with Jonathan Valdez. Third-highest bonus handed out by the Red Sox during January 2022 signing period. Younger brother of Red Sox minor league outfielder Jhostynxon Garcia. 

Summation: Bat-first catcher with potential to stick behind the plate. Wide range of possible outcomes.

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