Highly regarded as a pitcher coming out of high school, Tatum has developed into one of the better defensive catchers in college baseball. His arm strength rates 65 on the 20-80 scale, and he consistently delivers the ball to second base in 1.85-1.92 seconds. He's become a sound receiver as a redshirt sophomore, and has gained strength offensively and developed some of his raw power. He still struggles to make consistent contact and has worn down from his catching load. While he has a strong body, he often skips infield and bullpen sessions to stay fresh for games, leading some to question his durability.
