Physical Description:  Athletic frame for a catcher. Filled-out since signing. Looks his listed height and weight.

Hit: Stands straight up in the box, crouches slightly and taps toe upon approach. Uppercut swing, quick wrists. Fringe-average hit tool, may struggle with advanced off-speed pitching. Makes hard contact when he gets the bat on the ball. Below-average plate discipline lacks patience and will swing at some bad pitches.

Power: Average power. Heavy pull-side hitter.

Speed: Decent speed for a catcher, but will not be part of his game.

Arm: Above-average arm. Struggles with accuracy.

Defense: Currently a below-average defensive backstop, but flashes potential. Has also spent a lot of time at third base. Needs work on his footwork, blocking, and game calling.

Career Notes: Signed out of the Dominican in Fall 2013. Hit well up the ladder through Rookie Ball and A-Ball, but spent a lot of time splitting time at catcher and third base. Has missed time regularly due to a variety of injuries. Participated in 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2018 Fall Instructional League.

Summation: Projects as a high-minors contributor with the potential to develop into an offensive-minded backup catcher with some versatility to also backup corner infield. Needs to make significant strides on defense, improve his patience at the plate, and show that he can hit advanced pitching.
