Scouting Report: Athletic catcher with plus power. Very high ceiling. Good bat speed. Projects to have average to above-average hit tool. Defense lags behind the bat at this point, but the tools are there to be an above-average defensive catcher. Strong arm but throwing mechanics could use some work. Athleticism should allow him to move to a corner outfield spot in the future if needed.
