Hit 30 40 Slow bat, more strong than quick through zone; doesn’t adjust barrel well, struggles w/ off-speed; can project some on hit tool given age, but won’t ever be a big hit/on-base producer.

Run 30 30 Near bottom-of-the-scale runner; already wide through lower-half w/ chance to slow down even more as catching takes a toll; could be a clogger at maturity.

Field 45 50 Big target to throw to, still gets low and shows soft enough hands to project an avg big league defender. Question blocking and lateral agility if frame doesn’t trim up.

Overall Summary
Physicality and raw power potential are interesting at catcher; concerned about soft body and limited athleticism; don’t think he dominates one side of the ball enough for full-time ML role. Projects as upper-level depth w/ potential for callup value. Follow grade.
