Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 40 Leaks front hip off the ball and sells out for power, limiting barrel control and ability to use both fields. Bat is in and out of the zone quickly, whiffs through elevated FBs. Some ability to draw walks, but not enough to buoy high-power, high-strikeout approach. Don't see hit tool/on-base ability for future everyday role.

Game Power 40 45 Yanks mistake FBs over the plate for pull power. Lift-focused approach will always get to some game power, but don't think raw fully comes into the equation given hit tool limitations.

Raw Power 50 50 Big league raw power in the tank; easy flyball juice to pullside and straightaway in BP.

Run 45 40 Deceptively athletic, moves fairly well underway and can swipe the occasional base due to timing and instincts. Will lose a step or two as the rigors of catching take a toll. Avg athlete that won't clog the bases.

Field 45 50 Spends most time at catcher, can line up at 2B/3B in a pinch. Fairly new behind the plate, improving receiver who could finish avg w/ more reps. Sets low targets w/ flexible lower half, shows occasional aptitude for framing. Hands get hard and grabby at times, still has things to work on.

Throw 45 50 1.97-2.02 game pop; Avg raw arm-str w/ fair carry, plays down a tick due to transfer, though can correct in time. Currently plays to 45 given inconsistent throwing accuracy, sails to armside when feet aren't set.

Overall Summary
Versatile catcher/infielder who projects to move around the field and bring some pop off the bench. Power potential at a center-diamond position is intriguing, though lack of true plus tool on either side of the ball likely holds him back from everyday value. Realistically fits as bat-first second option behind the plate.
