  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Scouting Report: Average catcher's build. Solid athlete who has some projection remaining. Misses at pitches in the zone, particularly against high velocity and changeups. Hits lefties better than righties. Doesn't chase. Drives the ball with backspin. Moves well behind the plate. Slightly above-average pop times. Could stand to quicken his throwing motion. Was committed to Kansas City (Kan.) Community College. Participated in the Fall Performance Program in 2021. Repeated the FCL in 2022. Spent portions of 2023 on the development list.
  Note: This page will be updated with a complete scouting report after the scouting team has seen the player in person.
