While Garver may not even be the top catching prospect in the organization, he opened some eyes last year at Cedar Rapids with a .298 BA along with 16 HR and 79 RBI. An offense-first catcher, he's also been getting some time at first base and outfield to help keep that bat in the lineup.
He'll likely settle in for the long haul at Fort Myers this year. It will be interesting to see if that bat that clubbed well in college as well as his first year in the minors continues to grow. There is some significant sleeper potential here.
