Arrambide has established himself as the clear No. 1 catcher in the 2024 class. On the defensive side, Arrambide has just about everything scouts want to see for a catcher his age. He’s strong but loose, flexible and an athletic, agile mover behind the plate. He receives well, does an outstanding job of blocking balls and is elite at controlling the running game as well. He has a plus-plus arm with clean, efficient throwing mechanics, getting rid of the ball with exchange times on par with the top catchers in the big leagues. His pop times in games are regularly under 1.9 seconds and get into the low 1.7-second territory. The attributes are all there for Arrambide to develop into a plus-plus defender, and while it’s his work behind the plate that stands out the most, Arrambide can also do damage in the batter’s box. He has performed at a high level in games with a power-over-hit profile. He has quick hands, a pull approach and a swing geared to lift the ball with above-average raw power. There is some swing-and-miss to his game that he will have to keep in check, but he has a chance to be a 20-25 home run hitter.
