Mike Papierski
Name: Michael Papierski
Born: Feb 26, 1996 in Lemont, Ill. USA
High School: Lemont (Ill.) HS
College: Louisiana State
Ht.: 6'4" / Wt.: 225 lbs
Bats: B / Throws: R
Drafted in the 9th round (271st overall) by the Houston Astros in 2017 (signed for $140,000)
A 16th-round pick of the Blue Jays out of high school, scouts have long seen Papierski's ability to handle velocity as he was high school teammates with hard-throwing prospect Jake Latz and he's caught a talented staff at Louisiana State as well. Papierski is a solid catch-and-throw catcher, it's his lack of offensive projection that will keep him from hearing his name called too early. He's a below-average hitter with a little pop, giving him a potential backup catcher profile.
