6-foot, 180-pound right-handed hitting catcher. The frame is thin as of now but should fill out well as he matures in age. He ran a 7.88 sixty at the event, as that will have to improve as he matures in age. The defensive skills are solid, throwing 76 mph down to second base with a pop time of 1.98. The transfer is clean and his throwing path is solid. The receiving needs to continue to improve as he matures and gets reps. The bat has an exit velocity of 92 mph. The setup is close with his feet and the front foot dives into the plate as the swing is produced. The path is uphill through contact and he uses a 1-handed release after contact with the baseball.

Exit Velocity- 92 mph

Catching Velocity- 76 mph

Pop Time -1.98

The swing is level to up, stays through the baseball, hands are inside, creating backspin to the gaps. Shows the ability to go opposite with easy effort. The exit velocity was clocked at 85 mph and ran a 7.69 sixty-yard dash. Defensively, the receiving and blocking is advanced,  strong hands on the catch, secures the pitch, moves very well behind the plate. Pitches look to be comfortable throwing to him.
