XL frame and body, physically fit, lacks remaining physical projection. Easily the largest catcher I have scouted.
Lakeland Flying Tigers (High A, Tigers)
Role 3, Organizational player
Hits from a crouched even stance with a leg kick for timing; muscled body; longer swing path; slow hands; fair eye; below-average bat speed; struggles with pitches on the inner half.
Average raw power; has natural strength with some loft; plays to below-average due to in-game utility and longer swing.
Not a runner; best time of 4.50; is not a basestealing threat.
Fair defensively; surprisingly athletic behind plate given size; blocks pitches in front and side-to-side; fair hands on transfer.
Plus throwing arm; 1.90 to 2B; struggles with accuracy at times; fair hands on transfer.
Greiner had some promise initially but has had issues since a hamate injury in 2014. At this point he has some major-league value as a defensive back-up who works well with a pitching staff, but is also likely to be a quality org player.
