  Scouting Report & Links      
  Physical Description: Sturdy catcher's frame. Fairly athletic. No remaining projection.

Hit: Below-average hit tool. Passable plate discipline and approach. Lots of swing and miss.

Power: Average to potentially a tick above-average power.

Run: Below-average runner, about average for a catcher.

Field: Limited scouting available, said to be a solid defensive backstop. Also capable of playing corner infield and left field.
  Arm: Solid-average arm.

Career Notes:
Played a utility role in college and early in pro career. Was on Twins' 40-man roster in 2022. Cleared waivers and was outrighted to Worcester in November 2022, signaling that he likely signed a contract for 2023 before being designated for assignment.

Summation: Triple-A emergency depth capable of playing multiple positions.
