Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 45 Overmatched as a teenager in full-season ball but shows tools to eventually hit. Feel for the barrel, squares up hard line drive contact to the big part of the field. Projects for playable hit tool as bat gets stronger at pro level.

Young glove-first catcher w/ good instincts and makeup. Overmatched as a teenager in A-Ball, though the tools are here to develop into a solid backup option in the big leagues.
