Rios is a offense-oriented catcher with questions about whether he'll stay behind the plate. He has a square, block body that makes him a good target, but his fringe-average arm emboldens opponents to run on him. He is a solid-average blocker and receiver. At the plate, Rios is a pest who wears pitchers down and drives the ball with a short, compact swing. He spoils pitches until he gets the one he wants and lines the ball to all fields with doubles power. Rios lacks a plus tool and is seen mostly as an organizational player, but his ability to hit and receive behind the plate has some teams considering taking him in the back of the top 10 rounds.
