Scouting Report
: Good defensive catcher with a sturdy frame. Excellent at throwing runners out. Average at blocking balls in the dirt and catching mistake pitches off the plate. Calls a good game, but needs to improve framing pitches. Nimble behind the plate, looks very good fielding bunts. Has the potential to be an excellent defensive catcher at the major league level. He is said to be an extremely hard worker with strong leadership ability. With the bat, Wagner has gap power and makes decent-but-inconsistent contact. Very good plate discipline. Somewhat streaky, he seems to decline each year come August (with the exception of 2007, and he ended that season on the DL). No particularly dominant offensive tools, but all are at least average. His swing is well suited for Fenway.
