Solid catch-and-throw catcher with good feel for the game, particularly for his age; easy contact; no juice; good bloodlines.

Oh, jeez, he is a catcher.  I don't know why I thought I saw shortstop on his page.

Good bloodlines?  Related to Edgardo Alfonzo?

Just now, Mr. Bigglesworth said:

Emily referred to him as a back stop in her tweet, and I am guessing you misread that as shortstop.

Maybe that. 

Or I'm an idiot.  There's always that probability.

She referred to him as a "short season back stop" which is entirely appropriate...but I could see how someone could glance at that and see shortstop.

Guys like this make following MiLB fun.  He's young for the league and having some success hitting for average but doesn't have much power.  It will be interesting to see if the other parts of his game come along and if he develops some pop as he matures.

I read "door stop," and figured this was a metaphor for something that refuses to be ignored.

And one can safely get behind a doorstop.

Speaking of shortstops, Cole Peterson has jumped all the way to Toledo from Lakeland this season and he is by all accounts a +++ glove.

Mostly out of necessity as Lugo Castro and Ronnie are in Detroit

Kouzma and W Castro still give the Hen's 3 SS on the roster.

Good field, no hit middle INF - if he wasn't already in our system Avila would trade Manning for him.

Speaking of Joe Jimenez, what do we make of him?

Do you mean Bruce Rondon?

I heard that comparison this morning.  He is trending to but not quite there yet.

Skubal's emergence has been the best thing to come out of the organization this year.

hopefully it continues as he climbs the organizational ladder.

I read it as shortstop too.  Not Emily's fault!
