Field 40 45 Below-average defender; struggles to block pitches and doesn't handle erratic arms well at present. High-character player who puts in the work; can grind himself into a half-grade better defensive catcher w/ experience, but never will be known for the glove.

Overall Summary
Doesn't have a carry tool for an everyday major league role. Risk to profile, as he will have to remain at catcher to hold prospect value. If he stays behind the plate, see ceiling of a AAAA/Call-up depth, as an offensive-minded backup catcher.
