    A switch-hitting catcher with some solid receiving skills, Embry is lighter on arm strength and will need to improve that area of his game to keep runners in check. He moves well for a backstop and has played in the outfield at times for Liberty, and at the plate he has solid discipline and has almost twice as many walks (112) as strikeouts (65) over his three-year career. This spring was his best season offensively, as Embry hit .311/.455/.536 with a career-best 10 home runs.
