Haynie stood out for his righthanded power and arm strength coming out of high school in 2013, but was firmly committed to Alabama and went undrafted. After three years of playing for the Crimson Tide, those remain his two best tools. Haynie has led Alabama in home runs each of the last two years, hitting 10 this spring. His power comes with significant swing and miss, however, and he is a career .203 hitter. Haynie is big for a catcher (he's listed at 6-foot-5, 225 pounds), but he is a good athlete and moves well enough behind the plate. His receiving has improved this spring to go with his above-average arm strength. Haynie will have to find a way to make more contact at the plate, but his power and catch-and-throw skills give him a chance.
