    At 6-foot-4, 195 pounds, Heim is larger than most catching prospects, but scouts like his athleticism and ability behind the plate. He receives well with strong hands and has an average arm that could play up if he makes adjustments. He has a good exchange and needs to work on his feet and get out of his squat quicker. He's a switch-hitter with a little more power from the right side and a better approach from the left. He has average raw power with loft and will probably be not better than a fringe-average hitter. Scouts love his work ethic, but questions about his bat mean he won't go higher than the sixth round. He is committed to Michigan State.
