Scouting Report

Bailey is one of the best defensive catchers in the class with excellent catch-and-throw skills. But scouts are near unanimous in their worries about how much offense he will produce. The N.C. State signee shows some ability to make contact from both sides of the plate, but lacks prototypical power for the professional game. Bailey may get a chance to prove his bat in college, but a team looking for a catcher who can handle velocity and give pitchers confidence in burying their best slider could be enticed to spend some money on him, hoping that his bat and power will develop.
