    A big, physical catcher with some defensive skill, Susi has hit well this spring in his third year with Connecticut, with a career-best .330/.401/.401 triple slash. Currently with below-average power, Susi profiles as a backup catcher and has an above-average arm and terrific work ethic behind the dish. He's gotten thicker this spring, and somes scouts have said his defensive ability has backed up because of that, so he'll need to monitor his weight moving forward. Offensively, Susi has some bat-to-ball skills and a good idea of the strike zone--he's walked 10.6 percent of the time in three years with Connecticut compared to a 13.4 percent strikeout rate--but a slow bat. Last summer Susi had a decent showing in the Cape Cod League, with a .267/.360/.427 triple slash and 11 walks to 18 strikeouts in 23 games.
