2016 Stohs Prospect Handbook Profile: Drafted in the 48th round in 2011 by the Astros, he declined and went to Georgia Tech. He played two years before sitting out his junior season for personal reasons. He played great in the Cape Cod League that summer and put his name back on the prospect map. He returned for his senior season and hit .279/.366/.582 (.948) with 16 doubles and 15 home runs. The Twins took him in the 14th round. At 6-2 and 215, he has good size for a catcher. He has a strong arm. He hasn’t been catching for a long time, so he’s still got room to grow defensively. Offensively, he’s got a good approach at the plate and could hit for some power in time.
