  Scouting Report & Links      
  Physical Description: Athletic, projectable frame. Looks the part. Has room to physically mature.

Hit: Starts open with his hands high. Quiet pre-swing. Simple, short, direct swing mechanics. Toe-tap timing device. Advanced approach for his age. Very selective and knows the strike zone. Quick hands. Bat speed should improve as he physically matures.

Power: Fringe-average raw power. Swing is more geared for line drives than over-the-fence power right now. Hits the ball hard. As he adds strength, power potential could increase.

Run: Below-average speed. Not a major part of his game.

Field: Moves well behind the plate. Solid defensive profile for his age. Athletic enough that he could move to third base if he outgrows catcher in the future.
Arm: Above-average arm strength. Could improve to plus as he adds strength and physically matures.

Career Notes: Received the second-highest bonus of the Red Sox 2021 international free agent class.

Summation: High-variance catching prospect with considerable upside. Has all the tools you look for in a catching prospect of his age, but is a long way from actualizing them. Lot of development remaining. Present value is all about projecting what happens in the future as he physically matures.

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