Catcher Braeden Schlehuber outperformed teammate Devin Shepherd this season, slamming five home runs, and showing the athleticism to steal 16 bases as well as solid catch-and-throw skills. He has an average to plus arm but wore down and needs to gain strength to catch every day as a pro. Offensively, Schlehuber gets his barrel on the ball consistently when he hits his pitch, and his hand-eye coordination can actually make him too aggressive. He often expands his strike zone and swings at pitches he can hit, rather than waiting for pitches he can drive. He's an Arkansas recruit, and one coach compared him to A.J. Pierzynski for his ability to get under opponents' skin.
