View Draft ReportCatcher Sergio Burruel wasn't a big name coming into the season, but got noticed when he hit 15 home runs in 27 games. His body is soft, similar to Yadier Molina, so he's not athletic behind the plate and will never be a threat on the bases. He has arm strength and can drive balls out of the yard. His receiving needs work, but he's bilingual, has soft hands and shows good leadership ability. He's thrown around some bonus figures that scouts think are too high, but has been crosschecked and could go in the top 10 rounds.
