    View Draft Report
    A three-year starter at South Carolina, Greiner has come a long way from his freshman year, when he was seen as an easy out and batted just .222. His offensive game has progressed as he's learned to tap more consistently into his solid-average power. At 6-foot-5, 220 pounds, he's tall for a catcher and has a long swing, and most scouts grade him below-average as a hitter. He's a steady, quiet receiver, who has gotten over a freshman hitch when he struggled throwing the ball back to the pitcher's mound. He handled pitchers well for Team USA last summer and receives velocity well. While his arm strength grades as above-average, he's thrown out just six of 32 basestealers this spring, due in part to a long transfer. Greiner fits a backup catcher profile with a chance to be a regular if his bat continues to progress.
