Varsho has an unusual assemblage of strengths and weaknesses. He's the catcher who can really run but can't really throw. The son of former Cubs and Pirates outfielder Gary Varsho, Daulton has hit for average and power as a sophomore and junior. He's a short, strong-bodied lefthanded hitter with pull power and bat speed. Evaluators like his swing and he uses the whole field, but some worry about whether Varsho will hit for average in pro ball because he'll get caught front-footed at times. He has, however, been strong enough to make it work in college, batting .362 through 54 games this spring. Varsho could end up getting picked in the third to fifth round by a team that likes his potentially above-average receiving ability and his ability to block balls in the dirt, but it will have to be a team that is willing to live with his below-average throwing arm. He is a plus runner who could possibly slide to left field.
