Scouting Report:

When you analyze the talent in the major and minor leagues, the catching position is not as deep as other positions on the diamond. Tyler Stephenson is one of the few catching prospects I like in baseball today.



Stephenson was taken by the Reds 11th overall in the 2015 draft. There was even rumors that he could go #1 overall. Why do I like him? Well one reason is that for a kid being drafted out of high school his hit tool is above average. Scouts speculate that Stephenson shows enough raw power to hit 20 home runs in a season to go along with an advanced hitting approach. Baseball America graded his hit tool very high (120 total) which is a great sign for a young player out of high school.


Verdict: STRONG BUY based on the affordable base auto price. For such a young player Stephenson has shown that he is already an advanced hitter with power potential. Please note that this is a long term hold. It takes catching prospects a little longer to develop as they learn to master their skills behind home plate.
