Raw Power 30 40 *Upgraded from 20/30. 11/15/2016: Pull side carry on fly balls; can project some gap power as he gets stronger; will hit some doubles and will run into a few, but not a HR guy.

Run 45 45 4.41 HP-to-1B; Athletic runner, best underway; not going to be a base stealer, but a smart base runner and will pick his spots. Can go 1st to 3rd; will take the extra base.

Field 55 60 Very athletic, good instincts; quick to his knees, keeps everything in front and moves side-to-side well. Strong receiver with soft hands and low target with framing capability. Advanced feel for the game; knows how to manage a staff, positive impact on pitchers' command. Will continue to improve.

Throw 60 60 *Updated from 55/55. 11/15/2016: Quick release and gets some finish through the bag; slightly low arm slot and will get slight tail, but stays on target. Arm strength from angles when throwing off balls in dirt.

Overall Summary
Everyday Catcher who is a plus defender with ultra-smooth actions and leadership qualities. Quick, smooth actions behind the plate and keeps everything in front. Keeps a good, low target and keeps the pitcher in rhythm. Plus arm strength with accuracy and a quick release. Pops out quick and has range out in front of the plate. Knows the strike zone and has a balanced approach. Aggressive in hitters' counts, but does not expand. Level stroke with average bat speed; will get uphill at times; looking at gap type power at best future. Will give a good AB and should hit enough to be an everyday guy. Over-achiever, baseball player. Some concern about the body and him wearing down. See some value at 2B as well; athletic enough to have average defense there as well. Comparable to Tony Wolters at the major league level.
