9/23/17 - 6-1, 170-pound catcher w/ makings of elite defensive tools.  Offensively, the righty hits from an open, slightly crouched stance w/ back shoulder hand location and a short bat waggle.  Leg kick w/ no hand load.  Swing stays in zone for long time, will see improvement w/ some hand separation.  Gap to gap type offensive player.  Defensively, shows soft hands w/ feel for receiving.  Moves well behind the plate.  Above avg arm strength w/ solid release yielded consistent sub 2.1 pop times.  Big time catching prospect.
