5-foot-10, 210-pound, thick, strong physical frame, solid strength for his age. A right-handed hitting catcher, at the plate, starts wider, slightly open. The hands are loose, set higher, small controlled leg raise for timing. The swing is level through the zone, stays through the baseball, driving it to all fields. The finish is high with one hand, had a tee exit velocity of 80 mph, well above average for his age, looks to have present gap power. Defensively, moves well behind the plate, hands are strong on the catch, footwork will continue to quicken with reps and physical development. The arm is clean, works out of a ¾ slot, clocked at 74 mph with a pop time of 2.16-2.2. Overall conditioning is a must, will be interesting follow over the next few years.
