    The 18-year-old catcher impressed last summer at premium showcases but has had a lot of inconsistencies exposed this season, leaving a ton of question marks for evaluators. Moller has feel for the barrel and a decent path, but scouts are split on the swing. He has huge raw power potential but he can get really pull happy with a tendency to drop his back shoulder and try to lift everything, causing him to run into swing-and-miss trouble. The Louisiana State commit was impressive defensively early on and is athletic behind the plate, but he’s had concerning lapses where he doesn’t block a ball or will drop one. He has soft but strong hands and the ability to block and is quick with his exchange, but inconsistency is his kryptonite. The arm has potential to be plus, but he also doesn’t show the arm strength routinely. The 6-foot, 195-pound backstop is a well below-average runner, but it doesn’t impact his catching profile much. Moller needs to tighten up his tools because they’re there, but he doesn’t always show them in game settings.
