Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 55 Consistently finds the barrel and did not show much swing-and-miss. Controls the zone well. Has the ability to hit the ball with authority to all fields. He does have a slight uppercut.
Power 55 His uppercut swing and ability to make hard contact will bode well for his game power.
Baserunning/Speed 45 Slightly above-average runner for a catcher.
Glove 55 Moves extremely well laterally to block balls. Shows athleticism to make plays in front of the plate. Quiet receiver. History at the corner infield positions provides potential fallback if defense doesn’t reach full projection.
Arm 70 Plus, plus arm behind the plate. Good footwork and smooth release.

Upside potential of an all-around catcher, a solid defender with an above-average bat relative to the position. High risk profile, but has performed well in college and with wood bats in the Cape Cod League.
