    Tanner was a talented two-way prospect in high school who showed impressive catching skills and a big arm on the mound that could get up to 95 mph. He focused on catching and hitting at Mississippi State, where he has shown some on-base ability and power, but mostly has stood out as one of the better catch-and-throw backstops in the country. In a class where the top catching prospects are bat-first, Tanner is a no-doubt catcher at the next level who receives at a high level and has 70-grade arm strength. He threw out 26% of basestealers during the 2021 season and 24% during the 2022 season. He’s a hard worker behind the plate and has shown an ability to handle power arms with ease and should develop into an above-average defender at the game’s most premium defensive position. Offensively, Tanner is a power-over-hit righthanded bat who managed 15 home runs as a sophomore in 2021 but has never hit over .300 in a full season. He has a solid approach at the plate but struggles against 93-plus mph velocity and his swing gets long and sweepy. He projects as a below-average hitter who will provide defensive value.
